History & Background
Recognizing the need to combine recruitment efforts, the Consortium initiated an alternative to the traditional recruitment program in 1995. Working together to promote the ideals emphasized by each member school, the organization provides recruiters with students who bring ethical and moral values to the workplace. Now in its 22nd year, the Accounting Consortium has become one of the premier recruiting events for new accountants in Western Pennsylvania.
