Lakeland University is known for having a strong accounting program, and a number of students currently enrolled have impressive resumes which have them positioned for post-graduation success.

Of the 11 students enrolled this fall in advanced financial reporting, seven will graduate in less than four years, including three students who will graduate in just three years.

"I am so impressed with these students," said Brett Killion, Lakeland's associate professor of accounting. "They have all done a great job maximizing their Lakeland experience and are great role models of what is capable within our program.

"We're also grateful to our corporate partners and all the incredible opportunities they provide for our students. They play a big role in the success of our program and setting up our students for post-graduation success."
