Ahad Khan05forWPPassionate about accounting, Ahad Khan decided to start a student organization for lower-level accounting students that gave them an overview of the career opportunities in accounting and provided opportunities to give back outside of the classroom.

One of Khan’s most rewarding experiences at USF has been founding the Accounting Society. He has worked with School of Accountancy Interim Director Uday Murthy to ensure the group meshes with the goals of the school, and is mentoring the younger officers to ensure that the society continues to succeed after he graduates. He is also a member of accounting honor society Beta Alpha Psi.

His passion for accounting is evident: Khan is scheduled to graduate this fall and has his eyes set on USF’s King O’Neal Scholar designation, which is given to those who graduate with a 4.0 GPA .  He aims to earn this designation while juggling the demanding accounting coursework with tutoring gigs, leadership in student organizations, an accounting internship, and working as a student assistant in the provost’s office.

Outside of accounting, Khan has tutored for both USF Athletics and the Bulls Business Community and holds a level one tutoring certification. He also worked as a student assistant in the provost’s office, assisting the university’s top leaders.
