The Zicklin Graduate Accounting Society (ZGAS) is one of the foremost graduate societies at Baruch College. With over 900 members and 1,000 students participating in our events each year, we are the largest and most active graduate society on campus. We hold at least 15 events per year, which include accounting panels, information sessions, resume and interview workshops with recruiters, and exclusive networking opportunities. Major accounting firms sponsor ZGAS events, including the Big Four and other mid-size accounting firms, such as Grant Thornton, RSM, Baker Tilly, BDO, Anchin, Cohn Reznick, ParenteBeard, and WeiserMazars.
Our goal is to provide numerous networking opportunities for our members with recruiters and professionals in the accounting world. We organize professional events such as firm presentations, mock interview workshops, networking events with the Big 4, mid-size and small accounting. We create a platform for students to gain a better understanding of the issues and opportunities in the accounting industry and the business world in general.
ZGAS Help Students Find Jobs
ZGAS co-sponsors information sessions with each of the Big Four accounting firms, as well as with many large and mid-size accounting firms. Our annual mid-size accounting career fairs and corporate accounting panels are extremely popular and well-regarded.
While applying for a job or a summer internship can be a daunting, ZGAS stands behind its members every step of the way. We pride ourselves on giving Baruch students every opportunity to succeed. Some of the free services that we organize or co-sponsor include mentoring, mock interviews and résumé critiques.

We provide stimulating environments at our events so students can learn more about the accounting profession, both from each other and distinguished professionals in the field. Additionally, our events afford members the opportunity to connect with professionals and recruiters, as well as keep on top of issues that affect the accounting industry and business world in general.
