"About the Press:

Located in downtown New York City in the former New York Times building at 41 Park Row and surrounded by iconic metropolitan sites such as City Hall and the Brooklyn Bridge, Pace University Press has been an integral part of academic publishing since 1987.

The Press publishes scholarly journals and books in the humanities and social sciences. In 1999, Pace University Press partnered with Lightning Source, Inc., a division of the Ingram Book Company, to produce titles on demand. A small university press, Pace UP manages all functions involved in book publishing—acquisitions, editorial, sales and marketing, design and layout—with a small in-house staff.
After over twenty years in operation, the Press has 60 journals and books in print, and a growing international readership for its titles."

COAP Experience

"The St. John’s COAP program, now in our fourth year, offers a tremendous number of benefits to our students including a behind-the-scenes look at the accounting profession through field trips and guest speakers, one-on-one interactions with numerous young accountants and CPAs, a sneak preview of the college life experience at a major metropolitan university, various soft-skill seminars and team-building exercises, a financial literacy workshop, and access to accounting faculty and business school administrators at the AACSB-accredited accounting department at St. John’s Peter J. Tobin College of Business.  Above all, students will be shown the infinite number of opportunities that our profession has to offer." COAP Chairmen Mark Ulrich

My experience was great participating in the Career Opportunities in Accounting Profession program at St. Johns University. Although I did not know yet whether accounting was my career path, it still gave me an enlightening aspect to the business world. We visited many firms such as Goldman Sachs and Deloitte to have guest speakers come in and speak about the firms. All of the guest speakers had spoken about their experiences in college and what decisions made them successful and which ones did not. Students were also given real-life situations to find answers from a business perspective. Overall the experience has lead me to continue my business path for my career.
