Leadership Institute

Smith & Howard’s 16th Annual Leadership Institute for Accounting Students will take place May 13-14, 2021. While it is too early to know if the 2021 event will be in person or virtual, we can promise you that either option will be highly interactive. Attendees will benefit from two days of networking with partners, managers and staff from Smith & Howard, leadership skill-building and an opportunity to get an inside look at the accounting world. Best of all, most of our spring and summer internship positions are filled by attendees of this event, making it an exciting learning opportunity that will help students succeed in the future.

Applications will be accepted until February 15, 2021. However, candidates are accepted on a rolling basis and slots fill early, so it is possible that the program will be full before that date. We therefore recommend that interested students apply early. Click here to apply.

If we are able to host the event in person, meals and accommodation will be provided. Please contact Nikelle Klareich, Recruiter, at 404-879-3268 should you have any questions.
