Meet the Firms

Sept. 21 | 4:30 p.m. –6:30 p.m.
Location: UWF Conference Center

The Iota Phi chapter of Beta Alpha Psi (BAP) and the Department of Accounting and Finance will hold its Meet the Firms Networking Event on Thursday, September 21, 2023 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Conference Center.

Meet the Firms provides an opportunity for UWF students to network with professionals in their major field. Firms are invited to participate with UWF students to begin to foster continuing relationships. This event is intentionally marketed to Accounting, Finance, and Management Information Systems majors; however, students in other degree programs may attend to learn more, network, etc. The majority of students will be seeking full-time employment, internships, or both. However, the event is not meant to be solely a job fair; freshmen and sophomore students, who are still early in their degree programs, benefit from the interaction with industry professionals and it's a great opportunity for your organization's branding.
Registration Opens: July 1, 2023

Deadline for registration: September 14, 2023
