About the LPDC

Welcome to the Leadership and Professional Development Center (LPDC)!  The LPDC uses both physical and virtual space to support LMAS programmatic goals through cross-disciplinary collaboration. This unique space helps accounting students learn and experience the critical facets of leadership and communication to enhance their competitive advantage in the workplace.  We would like to thank Ernst and Young for the generous endowment they gave to make this center possible.

Our goal at the E&Y Leadership and Professional Development Center is to support NIU’s Department of Accountancy in developing the leadership and communication skills of its LMAS students.  To this end, we offer:

      • Paper Critiques
      • Presentation Critiques
      • Video Feedback
      • Resume Critiques
      • Self-Awareness Development
      • Mock Interviews
      • Team-Building Challenges
      • Leadership and Communication Workshops
      • The Second City Improvisational Workshop
      • Accounting in Context Trips (e.g., Soldier Field, Shedd Aquarium)
      • Communication and Leadership Resource Library
