• Recent Baylor alum lands prestigious internship with Federal Accounting Standards Board

    Kristan HinnWhen the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) speaks, the nationโ€™s financial sector takes notice. The FASB sets the standards that govern the practices of all private accounting organizations in the country.

    And now, they count a Baylor Bear as one of their own.

    Recent Baylor alum Kristan Hinn, BBA โ€™12, MA โ€™12, has become the first Baylor accounting student to receive one of the FASB’s prestigious, highly-competitive internships. Hinn will serve as a postgraduate technical assistant, working in-depth on the standards-setting process that impacts anyone who works in the accounting field. Through her internship, she will assist on both short- and long-term projects that will shape the future and can help her continue her growth into a true leader in the field.

    “I am confident that my time at Baylor within the Department of Accounting and Business Law has afforded me experiences that I never otherwise would have had,” she says. “I am so thankful to the faculty and staff of the department for their immense investment in their students. I am also so very thankful for the support of my current employer, KPMG (Houston office), where I have been given multiple opportunities to grow in my understanding of and experience with the accounting profession throughout the past two years.”

    Sic โ€™em, Kristan!
