2019 CPA Firm Summer Leadership Programs

The Missouri Society of CPAs is committed to helping students and professors in accounting programs explore career paths in accounting. For students interested in gaining public practice experience, many CPA firms offer summer leadership programs, particularly for rising juniors (the summer between sophomore and junior year, or equivalent). These programs offer exposure to working at a public practice firm and often lead to internship offers for interested candidates. The list below represents publicly available opportunities with area firms offering these types of programs, links to application pages, locations, and specific dates (if available).
