Special accounting program attended by Malden students

August 20, 2018 by  

Two students from Malden High School, junior Gregory Chau and senior Nicole Chen, along with 21 other students, recently participated in a special week-long summer program for students who are interested in pursuing careers in business and accounting.

Careers in Accounting and Management Professions (C.A.M.P.) is designed for underrepresented high school students to increase their knowledge in these fields.

The Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst organizes the program and is where it took place. Assistant dean of advising and diversity from the Isenberg School of Management, Melvin Rodriguez, said that this program is rare opportunity for young people.

President and CEO of the MSCPA, Amy Pitter, added that the program enables students to become completely engaged in the field of accounting and see all that it has to offer.

As part of the program, the students attended a panel hosted by Ernst and Young at their office in Boston and featuring members of the Massachusetts Society of Certified Public Accountants (MSCPA). They also visited Fenway Park and met Tim Zue, the CFO of the Red Sox.

Having now attended C.A.M.P. Chen and Chau can now be mentored and eligible for scholarships from the MSCPA.

Flyer printing can be used for future students to learn about such programs and what they need to do to apply.
