APSU College of Business partners with Stone, Rudolph and Henry to give students real-world training

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Last fall, the Austin Peay State University College of Business decided to do things a little differently with its income tax class for accounting majors.

Instead of having a faculty member lead the course, the college brought in a tax attorney from the local CPA firm Stone, Rudolph and Henry to teach students about real-world tax filing scenarios.

“One of their tax attorneys taught the class of about 20 students, teaching them what they need to know about tax law, but also how to use the tax software, which is proprietary software,” Dr. Susan Cockrell, associate dean of the APSU College of Business, said. “At the end of the semester, they offered internships to eight or nine of those students.”
