The BCAP program is an annual weeklong event sponsored by EY and the University of Arizona Accounting Department and is offered free of charge to students. Also including in this year’s BCAP program is a one day Experience Day. Experience Day is geared towards students who are unable to attend the week long BCAP program but are still interested in business, accounting, and the UA.
Students who are selected will be housed on campus in dormitories and participate in numerous activities and field trips designed to expose underrepresented student populations to the accounting profession and its various career opportunities. Participants experience the life of a college student while developing and presenting a business plan to accounting professionals.
BCAP is an excellent resource for students who have the ability to attend college but may not believe that they can find funding, or may not have family support for this choice. It is also aimed at talented students who would like to explore the potential of a business major before they start college.
