UTA Accounting Internship Program

If you are interested in enrolling in the internship course for college credit, the first step is to find an accounting internship.

How do I get an internship?

Three steps to getting the internship you really want:

  1. Start early. Accounting students should start looking for internships at least two years before their anticipated graduation date from the PPIA program. New Master's students should start the recruiting process their first semester.
  2. Register with The Career Center. They can help you perfect your resume, practice your interview skills, and find an internship. Once you sign up you will need to start checking their interview calendar once or twice a week so that you do not miss the opportunity to interview with the firms you want.
