The SAI program enables students to obtain in-depth, practical exposure to the accounting and business environment during the “busy season.” Accounting majors work full time at an accounting or related firm during the spring of junior year, earning six free elective credits. The program is designed so that students may complete up to 12 credits during the summer following their junior year, thereby retaining full-time student status and remaining on track to graduate in four years. Upon successful completion of the SAI program, many students are offered full-time job opportunities at the public accounting firms.
The planning process for students interested in participating in SAI begins in the spring semester of sophmore year.

This internship was a lot of work. That being said, this is one of the best reasons to sign up for an internship during “busy season.” You get real world experience and they do a careful job of giving a lot of responsibility without overloading you.
