Crowe on Campus Brings Real-World Experience to the ‘Hill’
Crowe LLP, a public accounting, consulting and technology firm, announced that Crowe on Campus, an innovative in-school paid internship, launched at FAMU’s School of Business and Industry. Crowe has 40 offices, including three in Florida.
FAMU is the first historically Black university to participate in this unique collaboration offered at just four other universities. Crowe on Campus is an opportunity for real-time learning that combines classroom and professional experiences.
Students are provided with a lab environment in which to learn about public accounting and auditing – without the hassles of commuting to an office or a client site. An on-site supervisor from Crowe will be present whenever students are working to train, monitor, assign tasks and lead the interns to build their technical expertise. Students will work using a Crowe-provided computer, and they will receive continual feedback from their on-site supervisor as well as the off-site teams they work with.
