Accounting Club

 

 

 

Description: The Methodist University Accounting Club is the gathering of accounting and non-accounting majors interested in accounting issues.

It is a good source of first-hand information about the accounting profession

The Accounting Club meets at least once per month - check the Accounting Club Blackboard site or email a co-advisor for the next scheduled meeting.
