Program Description
For several years, top accounting firms have recruited Miami University's best and brightest students. The Miami Accounting Program (MAP) is a camp designed to introduce top multicultural high school students to the accounting profession and to a college career at Miami University's Farmer School of Business. Under normal circumstances, the accounting firms along with the Farmer School of Business would host high school  students on campus to stay in a residence hall for three days and two nights. Because of COVID-19, the Miami accounting camp will be a virtual experience. With this new virtual format, selected students will participate in the following activities:

  • Virtual tour of Farmer School of Business building
  • Q & A and networking session with Miami student chaperones- Free Pizza Included
  • Networking Session with Big 4 Accounting Firms and Farmer School of Business accounting Interns
  • Strengths Finder Assessment and Activity. Free Strengths book will be delivered to your home

  • Professional development workshops and overview of accounting practices-Facilitated by accounting firms

This experience provides an excellent opportunity to network with accounting executives, collaborate in teams, and develop communication skills! In addition, the Miami Accounting Program (MAP) will help students further understand how a quality education from a top university will help them to achieve their long term career goals. Not only will students learn more about college life and self-development, but they will meet other talented students from the Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus  and Cleveland areas.
