Momentum is a three-day program designed to help accounting students gain a better understanding of the dynamics of the public accounting industry and the characteristics they’ll need to succeed. The program curriculum features discussion about what a career in public is really like, how different leadership styles interact in the workplace, and a panel discussion by select WK clients regarding the value that a public accounting firm provides. Our goal is to provide participants with tips and tools they can use as they complete their formal education and embark on a professional career.
