When the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) speaks, the nation’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 ’12, MA ’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 ’em, Kristan!
