William Vaughn logo

“William Vaughan Company, Northwest Ohio’s premier, locally owned accounting firm, specifically hires BGSU students because of their willingness and desire to learn and develop their professional skills outside of the classroom. The BGSU students that have participated in WVC’s internship program possess an acute attention to detail and a readiness to jump right into client work. Many students have remained in our internship for consecutive years, and some have even joined the WVC team as full-time associates after completing their studies. BGSU boasts a fantastic accounting program, reflected through the success of its students, which William Vaughan Company has had the pleasure to work with throughout the years.”
