Business CAMP attended by Malden student

September 20, 2017 by  

Over the summer, CAMP (Careers in Accounting and Management Professions), a specialized summer camp for students interested careers in accounting and business, was held.

During the day, Timothy R. Tso, from Malden, was one of the 35 high school juniors and seniors selected from across the state to attend.

The weeklong program is free and designed for minority students to learn more about business-related professions. The Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA), and Rich Gulman, CPA, partner and co-founder of DiCicco Gulman & Company and his wife Susan, sponsor the program, which is run by the Isenberg School of Management at UMass-Amherst.

There are several kinds of learning experiences, including visits to business organizations, hands-on activities, and classroom lectures. The students also attended a panel of certified professional accountants, hosted by the MSCPA, and met employees from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Boston. They were able to tour Fenway Park and talk with Tim Zue, CEO of the Red Sox.

Assurance Partner at PwC, Todd Bari, said the company understands that businesses need a diversity of backgrounds and experiences, so it is proud to support such a program that can open many doors to these students.

Organizations such as the MSCPA might consider using mailers or flyers to highlight the many opportunities available to students as a result of attending such programs.
