Welcome back from Spring break!! I hope that you all had a safe and restful break and are ready to meet the challenges of the second half of this semester. Many are returning from internships and I hope you all had a great experience and ready to reengage in classes.
As we approach the last month of classes Jan Pagoria will be setting up graduation exit interviews for those graduating in May. Please sign up for one of the time slots. Jan, Patty Lanier and I all take these very seriously. You will meet with us in small groups where we will ask you to give us feedback on your MSA experience. We keep all conversations confidential but do share the general feedback with the accounting faculty in an end of the year retreat. We DO incorporate changes that come out of these sessions. Remember, the value of your degree is not only the value now but the value in the future. Help us increase the value for you!!
You will soon be hearing from the graduate accounting club about a golf event in April. Last year we had novice golfers involved in this event and they had a great time! Please do not forgo this event just because you are not a golfer. All levels of experience are encouraged to participate. This is a great way to get out and enjoy the sunshine with your peers, faculty and Accounting Advisory Council members to relax a little before the end of the semester crunch hits.
CPA review is fast approaching!!! IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY REGISTERED FOR THE EXAM PLEASE DO SO IMMEDIATELY!
Given that many of you were off campus the first half of this semester I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of upcoming MSA events as follows:
March 26 – Two White Collar Crimes panels in Benson 401C. The first will run from 8:30–11:30 and the second will be from 1:15–4:15. Additional information on the sessions may be found at here.
April 15 – Our annual Hylton Lecture will take place from 4:45–6:30 pm in Annenburg Auditorium. We are thrilled to have Tim Flynn, chairman of KPMG International, as our 2009/2010 Hylton Lecturer. We will also be setting up some small group meetings with Tim earlier in the day so please let Jan know if you would like to participate in these.
