Great Alaskan Accounting People (GAAP)
GAAP is the accounting club at UAF.
GAAP's purpose is to help accounting students
- learn about the diverse career opportunities available for accounting graduates
- acquire an understanding of the day-to-day work of a professional accountant
- understand career planning and prepare for successful professional placement
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.
