UWAC 2006 | Accounting in the New Millennium

In its inaugural year, and as the premier accounting conference of its kind, the University of Waterloo Accounting Conference strived to promote the accounting profession and the development of accounting and business students into the leaders of tomorrow through encouraging them to draw from the experiences of prominent professionals in the industry. Through this, UWAC 2006 was able to establish the foundation and focus, in terms of accounting, for future conferences to come.
