Mississippi's First Accounting Camp Continues to Thrive at MSU
This week, 20 rising high school seniors from across Mississippi and neighboring states are getting an inside look at the world of accounting and university life at Mississippi State. Now in its fourth year, MSU’s Accelerating Students into the Accounting Profession (ASAP) summer camp is the first camp of its kind in Mississippi. The camp was created by Krystle Dixon, academic coordinator for MSU’s Richard C. Adkerson School of Accountancy. In addition to gaining a new perspective on the accounting field, students will hear from professionals and take a tour of a local firm to obtain a first-hand look at audit, tax, corporate accounting and advisory services.
