WHO ARE WE?

The Atkinson Professional Accounting Association (APAA) is a student-run organization that serves to encourage leadership, excellence, and professionalism in School of Administrative Studies Accounting students of York University.

 

The association was founded in May 1998 by a group of graduating students for the purposes of promoting Atkinson’s Bachelor of Administrative Studies in Accounting (BAS) program (Bachelor of Commerce effective Summer 2017), aiding students and soliciting support from University faculty and potential employers.

 

The majority of APAA members are School of Administrative Studies students who are working toward their Bachelor of Administrative Studies degree and are interested in a career in accounting. Upon graduation, many APAA members pursue a professional accounting designation.
