Kyle says two experiences, in particular, helped launch his college career and focus on accounting – the summer leadership programs with KPMG and Deloitte, and the Beta Alpha Psi accounting honorary society. Through these opportunities, he learned a lot about public accounting and he was pushed to grow as a leader. The experience taught him what he needs to know to succeed, and has helped place him in a job where he will have a great opportunity to learn, grow, and prosper.
