Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP-Ohio)

The Accounting Careers Awareness Program (ACAP-Ohio) is a week-long program for racially and ethnically underrepresented high school students interested in exploring careers in accounting and business.

ACAP-Ohio is presented by The Ohio Society of CPAs, the National Association of Black Accountants (NABA), and The Ohio State University’s Fisher College of Business.

Students are introduced to accounting, finance, leadership and management. Local CPAs and business leaders share their experiences and provide tips for success. Students attend workshops, discussions, networking sessions, and a case competition where they'll practice the skills they've learned during the week. The program wraps up with an all-star awards presentation for students, parents, speakers and corporate sponsors where college scholarships and other awards are presented to attendees.

Students typically spend an all-expenses paid week on the campus of The Ohio State University's Fisher College of Business. Due to the pandemic, this year's ACAP-Ohio program will be held virtually.
