I hope that everyone is doing well. I’m sure you are all looking forward to Spring Break, which is just upon us! I hope that each of you enjoy a restful, safe and fun Spring Break. I want to take this opportunity to tell you about some upcoming Spring events so that you can be sure to get them on your calendar. These events are open to everyone in the Schools of Business.
March 17: White Collar Crime panel hosted by Professor Kelly Pope, DePaul University, will take place from 4:15-6:15 pm in Pugh Auditorium. Pope hosted this panel last year when she was a visiting professor with the Wake Forest University accountancy programs. She is returning to campus this spring and will host the panel again for us. Additional information on the panel may be found here.
March 24: Our annual Hylton Lecture will take place from 4:15-6:15 pm in Anneburg Forum, Carswell Hall. We are pleased to welcome the corporate controllers of both American Express and Exxon Mobile Corp., along with their PwC audit partners, to campus. More information may be found here.
Here is a unique opportunity for MSA students planning to sit for the CPA exam: We are now working with the AICPA and have been selected as one of a small group of universities allowed to participate in practice CPA exam content sessions. Students electing to participate in this will need to bring their computer on the selected date where they will take some "test" CPA exam questions. These questions could quite possibly show up on the CPA exam in the future. If you would like to participate in this in April (on a Friday) please let me know of your interest by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be setting up several MSA Town Hall meetings throughout the Spring semester so please be on the lookout for these events. Please remember that I am here, as well as are Jan Pagoria and Mary Knapp, if you have anything you need to discuss.
