Partners Building the Accounting Profession

Every business needs qualified, competent accountants and financial officers. Nowhere is this more true than in Washington. Over the next 5 years, the need for accountants here is expected to be twice what it is in the rest of the nation.

Now, you can partner with Heritage University as we take up the challenge to meet this need.

The Heritage University Accounting Guild is a consortium of businesses and industry professionals who are committed to building the pool of qualified accountants in Washington state. We do so by encouraging our best and brightest students to pursue accounting careers. By providing scholarships to these students and by enhancing Heritage University’s accounting program, we ensure that our graduates enter the workforce well prepared to meet the needs of their employers. By working together, we not only build the future for the field of accounting, we are bolstering the economies of Central Washington and The Pacific Northwest.
