The MPA Distinguished Speaker Lyceum
is a distinctive feature of the MPA program which gives students the opportunity to interact on a regular basis with outstanding professionals from accounting practice and the business community, both from Texas and across the nation. Throughout the fall, prominent representatives of accounting practice, business, and government speak to students about a variety of important issues affecting professionals today. In this way, students gain insights about professional life and current issues and topics beyond what is usually covered in textbooks. MPA students enjoy becoming acquainted with some of the people whose names appear regularly in The Wall Street Journal
, the Journal of Accountancy
, and similar business periodicals. Required for all MPA students.
