Exclusive BAP Events
Every fall, BAP organizes the Accounting and Finance Career Fair. This awesome event brings over 100 firms together under one roof. The Career Fair is a great opportunity for students to meet with recruiters and professionals from many different accounting, finance, and corporate firms. The Career Fair is open to all students, and it is a wonderful experience for those seeking jobs and internships or simply the opportunity to grow their professional networks. Helping with the planning and volunteering during the fair also provide great opportunities for BAP member to be involved in the organization and to complete all their community service hours.
Beta Alpha Psi also holds a formal etiquette dinner every fall at the Indiana Memorial Union to train members in formal dining etiquette. We invite Etiquette Consultant Joe Boes to walk us through a full six-course meal and to share with us his list of do’s and don’ts for formal dining. This is a great opportunity for students to enjoy a delicious meal and to brush up on their dining etiquette before they go through the recruiting process!
This past spring, we also organized an office visit to PwC’s Indianapolis Office. We met with many great professionals and had lunch at the office. We also participated in a team building activity and took a tour of the office. This was a fantastic opportunity to network with PwC and to learn more about the daily life of a CPA.
During the spring semester, we always send a group of members to the Beta Alpha Psi Regional Meeting. The Regional Meeting brings together all the different BAP chapters from the Midwest Region. It is an awesome opportunity to network with other chapters, to learn about a variety of professional topics, and to hear about what other BAP chapters are doing. During the meeting, we also presented in two categories of the Best Practices Competition sponsored by Deloitte. We took home second and third place!
We also induct New Members in the fall and in the spring. In the fall, we hold a banquet for students, faculty, and professionals in order to recognize our awesome New Members. This is a great break from the craziness of finals and the end of the semester. In the spring, we hold a joint Beta Alpha Psi and Student Accounting Society Banquet. Students, faculty, and professionals again come together to celebrate the induction of our New Members and to recognize BAP and SAS scholarship recipients. This is also a time for our current officers to say good-bye and hand the reins to the new BAP officers. This banquet is always a great, and delicious, way to end the school year!
