Student Enrichment Programs
The accounting department's enrichment programs at Saint Joseph's University offer students the opportunity to network with Big 4 accounting firms as well as entrepreneurs and representatives from smaller, local public accounting firms. Enrichment opportunities include mentorship programs, internships, scholarships, speaker seminars, and various other resources designed to enhance your education and future career. Questions regarding enrichment programs should be directed to Professor Joseph M. Ragan.
The STAR Scholar Program is designed to prepare our accounting students for the pinnacle of success using cutting-edge technology. Scholars will gain exposure to high-level system applications, gain professional skills and earn recognition. If you have any questions about the program, please contact Professor Joseph Ragan, the STAR Scholar Coordinator.
Named after Edward G. Sutula, a former Saint Joseph's University accounting professor, the Sutula Scholars Program was designed to provide an enriching experience for a group of account students, as well as enhance the reputation and visibility of the accounting program.
Consistent with the legacy provided by Professor Joseph M. Ragan, whose career spans over 46 years with 29 years as the Chair of the Department of Accounting, the goal of a Ragan Scholar is to think, create, and transform. As a classroom educator, Professor Ragan took the lead in curriculum redesign through technology, creating advanced computer applications for classroom use and in so doing, helped engineer the transformation of accounting education.
The Accounting Society at Saint Joseph's University helps provide accounting majors with an "outside of the classroom" knowledge of accounting. Every year, the Accounting Society introduces many educational experiences to the students, as well as allows for multiple networking opportunities.
