In Alaska, there will always be a strong demand for knowledgeable business professionals and accounting remains a fast route to the top echelons of the business community. It is also a great springboard to many related professions. Over the years, GAAP members have been offered placement with public accounting firms, corporate organizations, and governmental entities well before graduating. Accountants earn an excellent salary, receive additional training opportunities, and fill rewarding positions with corporate or governmental organizations. Graduates who earn their CPA license enjoy even more opportunities, which can include tax planning, personal investment advising, or consulting.
Our objective is to facilitate the development of accounting students into confident and qualified accounting professionals. To further this goal, we aim to provide members with opportunities to:
Participation in GAAP develops students into professionals who are confident and qualified to accept staff accountant positions that require interaction with CEOs and other high-level management on a daily basis.
GAAP offers many activities that encourage social interaction with accounting faculty, alumni, and students.
