This program is designed to provide high school students an introduction and overview of the many career opportunities in the accounting profession. Over four-days, students are introduced to the basics of accounting and provided a glimpse of what to expect from the college experience.
Through the generous support provided this year by Deloitte, all students who are admitted to the Accounting Residency Program will be provided a scholarship that covers the program's full cost.
ARP students will attend instructional sessions during the day, with fun activities scheduled in the evenings. The daytime sessions will provide insights into career opportunities in accounting and related fields through panel discussions with national and regional accounting firms and representatives from industry groups and government agencies.
Other sessions will introduce important job skills, including:
- Resume writing
- Workplace ethics
- Business etiquette
- Financial literacy
- Leadership development
Students also get to sample "college life" by lodging in UGA residence halls, eating in the university’s award-winning dining halls, and attending lectures by UGA professors. The evenings are filled with fun outings, entertaining diversions, and time to enjoy the camaraderie of fellow ARP participants.
