I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to visit The Washington Campus last week with other students from the Graduate Accounting Programs at IU. During my stay, I was able to hear from guest speakers including lobbyists, representatives from the SEC and FBI, fiscal policy advisors, economists, cybersecurity experts, and more! I enjoyed learning about the interplay of accounting and public policy, and hope to return to D.C. in the future to further my knowledge of these issues.
It was very interesting to hear the perspectives of those in publicly traded companies, advocates for investors, lobbying interests, and how the opinions were similar and contrasted. I found all of the speakers to be very interesting. Specifically, the HP speaker, GE speaker, Howard U speaker, and the economists. There were interesting perspectives from lawyers, lobbying advocates, economists, and former regulators. Membership perspectives from the business round table were also important.
If there is a class that helped me understand how government and business interact, The Washington Campus did that. It was a great learning experience to discuss with various people involved in government, lobbying, and heads of different departments. I highly recommend this class to anyone who is in the MAC Program and interested in taking it. Besides, the city of DC is amazing.
