Business Careers Awareness Program
You can call it BCAP for short—and it’s here to help high school juniors from communities underrepresented in college business classes. If students have an interest in accounting or in business, we’ll help them prep for college and the meaningful career that can follow, thanks to EY.
I love helping students grow at different stages of their experience with accounting. Teaching provides me the chance to see accounting through the eyes of many extremely gifted and hardworking people each year. In turn, this enables me to learn more about a subject I care deeply about.

Thomas O’Kane ’20 BSBA
Thomas O’Kane ’20 BSBA (Accounting and MIS) is acutely interested in the intersection between business finances and information technology integration, which led him to pursue his two majors at Eller. He also made a decision to immerse himself in the Eller community as a leader because, he says: “I want to take each and every day as a chance to learn something new and support others in their own goals.”
Senior Lecturer Katie Maxwell
Because I am a non-tenure track employee, I focus on service, rather than research. What I love most is helping students embrace and develop their strengths while finding a career field that excites them.
Associate Professor Max Hewitt
I love having the opportunity to help students grow at different stages of their experience with accounting. Teaching allows me to think more deeply about the challenges that people face when processing financial information, as well as think carefully about the purpose of accounting, especially in the broader business environment.
