The University of Winnipeg Accounting Students’ Association (ASA) is a new association this upcoming 2016 academic year. The lack of student initiative around Campus for accounting students is what prompted the finding of the Accounting Students’ Association. Prior to finding the association, students pursing a concentration in accounting only had access to the resources of the Faculty. The years of resources that Faculty continue to provide us, ASA has started something spectacular while bringing new opportunities.

ASA understands university students are a distinct group, one that can dedicate four additional years towards enriching themselves academically in the classroom. ASA also understands accounting students are a unique blend of talented individuals. Individuals who show exceptional characteristics of organization, time-management, adaptability, communication, openness and leadership while showing a love for numbers.

Being student ran bridges the gap between student and Faculty. Working closely with Faculty ASA can provide opportunities that Faculty are limited to exploring. While the Association builds their reputation in the community, and student participation in the hosted events grow, more opportunities will be made available to the student body. ASA will go to all efforts to carryout our their mission and vision.
