Formerly known as McGladrey and Pullen, RSM is an audit, tax and consulting firm focused on the middle market in the U.S. and is the fifth largest accounting firm in the nation.
Many of the key decision makers and partners within the firm are UNI graduates who have played a major role in the firm’s presence on campus. RSM has contributed scholarship support for UNI accounting students and created the RSM Endowed Chair in Accounting, the first endowed chair in UNI’s Department of Accounting.
In addition to the financial support given by RSM, the firm hosts a number of learning opportunities for UNI students. The RSM Seminar is held twice a year and offers students the opportunity to discuss relevant professional issues that they may face including the importance of the CPA designation, transitioning from school to work and learning how a student’s individual style impacts their work.
RSM has provided more than 70 internship opportunities to UNI students since 2015 in which more than 60 of those students were offered full-time positions upon graduation. Graduates at RSM are also involved with the College of Business Administration and the accounting program through service on college advisory boards.
