WHO WE ARE
Backed by the largest membership base of any student-run association within the Queen’s Commerce Society, QAA has developed a highly reputable and distinguished position within the Queen’s Smith School of Business. As the school’s premier accounting body, the student-run Executive Team strives annually to maximize the benefits conferred to both our corporate sponsors and student members. For our members and the broader student body, we ultimately strive to inform, connect, and above all else, help students land their dream jobs as they begin their long, rewarding careers. To achieve this end, each year, we host a series of highly successful networking and educational events. These unique events allow us to keep the student body informed about the value of the CPA designation, the career opportunities that lie ahead, and ultimately provide students with the means of connecting with firms that can help them achieve their career goals.
Our three-fold mission is to educate students about the accounting profession, present them with different opportunities in the accounting field, and support career development by connecting sponsors and students.
WHAT WE DO
Throughout the year, we host numerous events that communicate the value of a CPA designation and the accounting profession to students at Smith. QAA hosts a series of networking events where our partner companies can interact with the highly talented students in both formal and informal settings. We also proudly present educational events where students can hear from speakers of various backgrounds about the realities of working in accounting and the career opportunities that follow after obtaining a CPA Designation.
Though these uncertain times certainly present obstacles, QAA is determined to stay connected to our members and sponsors. Our delivery methods may change, but our goal remains the same: to help students achieve their dream jobs through our exclusive networking opportunities and professional development workshops. We will adapt and overcome these challenges together. We are here to support you. Please reach out if you have any questions.
