2012 INCPAS Student Survey Results Revealed

Indianapolis, IN, June 07, 2012 --(PR.com)-- In February 2012, the Indiana CPA Society designed and administered the seventh annual INCPAS Student Survey. The survey seeks to gauge the views of students on their future career goals and plans in accounting, and their plans for staying and working in Indiana.
