Accounting majors at Washington and Lee University are heavily sought after for internships, in particular for the summer following their junior year. Many go to Big Four accounting firms and major investment banks, often returning for the fall of their senior year with offers of permanent employment following graduation.

In the summer of 2010, Washington and Lee students served as interns at all of the Big Four accounting firms, a number of the major investment banks as well as other accounting and financial firms across the country.

Washington and Lee also participates in a summer internship/academic program sponsored by Hollins University that offers a variety of internship opportunities in London.
