Below is a recap of last year’s Leadership Institute:
Smith & Howard’s 11th Annual Leadership Institute for Accounting Students was held July 14-15, 2016. Twenty four students from 10 different universities attended the event. The students participated in several activities during the program including:
On Thursday evening, the students and several members of S&H enjoyed Maggiano’s Little Italy for dinner and networking opportunities. After dinner, the students and S&H staff boarded a charter bus and headed to Escape the Room Atlanta. Our group was divided into three smaller groups. Each group was challenged with a real life adventure game to figure out clues and solve puzzles to earn their freedom and escape the room in less than 60 minutes. Our quickest group escaped in 44 minutes and their picture still hangs on the wall at Escape the Room as being one of the fastest groups to escape.
Students who attended the leadership institute said it was an amazing experience. They all had fun and gained some valuable knowledge from the program. Several students indicated that through this experience, they were able to clearly see that accounting was the right career path for them. In addition, the day in the life sessions helped some students determine if they were interested in audit, tax or advisory.
