Nine accounting students spent the whole month of June in London to study in one of Europe’s business & cultural capitals.
While there, they explored the global framework of International Financial Reporting Standards within European Business, visited international corporations, met with alums who now work and live in London and visited cultural and historical sites in London, Cambridge, and Oxford.

The School of Accounting has an National Advisory Board that provides feedback and updates on the state of accounting in the business world. The board consists of leaders from the accounting profession from Utah and around the country. Members of the board are active in assisting with student placement, recruiting students into the program and helping us reach out to our alumni.
