Working on a Not-for-Profit’s end of year Review and Tax Return as a form of EBL

Karen Shastri

Abstract


Recently, I have begun to provide MS in Accounting students with the opportunity to engage in the process and steps taken to provide a not-for-profit with their year-end review.  Students are able to experience this real-life work on a one on one basis with me. Given this is a new program, students participate through an independent study. Because it is often the student’s first exposure to any type of assurance work, it provides them with an excellent learning experience of what they would confront in an accounting firm and possibly the only experience similar to an internship if they happen to be an international student.
