The Project Discovery (PD) Accountancy curriculum is designed to enrich the student education at Illinois. Through this curriculum, students gain crucial accounting knowledge; they also develop important communication skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, and decision making. These skills can provide a competitive edge when being considered for internships, employment, or graduate schools.
The Communication Team reviews papers and presentations based on four important criteria:
• Coherence—organization and unity
• Clarity—effectiveness at communicating intended meaning clearly and persuasively
• Conciseness—simplicity and precision of language
• Mechanics—conformity with rules of grammar, punctuation and spelling
