Career and placement
In addition to helping students from any major with career planning and job placement, the Duquesne University Career Services Center has created a number of programs especially for students from the Pulumbo Donahue School of Business, which houses the accounting department.

Pulumbo-specific programs include the Professional Video Training Assistance Program (PROVITA), an individually tailored video program that helps students prepare for job interviews, and Corporate Video Conferencing, which allows employers to interview business students remotely from anywhere in the world.

Accounting students also have the option of joining either of the department’s resident student organizations: Beta Alpha Psi, an accounting honors society, and the Student Accounting Association. These organizations work together to host professional networking events and regularly invite speakers from relevant industries to deliver guest lectures on campus.
