Isenberg Chapter Wins Regional BAP/Deloitte Best Practices Competition
July 02, 2021
In March, students in Isenberg’s chapter of Beta Alpha Psi, the national accounting honor society, came out on top in the regional round of this year’s BAP/Deloitte Best Practices Competition. Vying against more than 100 submissions, the students captured first place in the Atlantic region for their presentation in the category “Invest in Yourself” (meaning the Isenberg BAP chapter). They also placed third in the category “Invest in Your Community.” The first-place win and third-place finish both come with cash prizes. In August, the students will move on to BAP’s annual meeting, where they will compete against other regional winners in “Invest in Yourself.”
The BAP/Deloitte challenge defines Best Practices as initiatives by chapters to pursue specified goals laid out by Deloitte and by BAP’s board of directors. To that end, the Isenberg presentation shared the chapter’s initiatives for embracing those goals and devising skills to achieve them. Isenberg students also showed how the chapter’s presentations and activities have encouraged its members to go beyond obtaining internships and jobs. And the students described how they added value as multi-year BAP members.
The Isenberg chapter’s Co-Chairs of Competitions are Cassandra Raffi ’20, MS ’21 and John Stanfield ’20, MS ’21. The chapter’s faculty advisors are accounting professors Yoon Ju Kang and Cathy Lowry.
