As part of an ongoing diversity initiative, the Schools of Business invites college juniors and seniors from other campuses, including historically black colleges and universities, to learn more about the Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) degree, careers in accounting, and specifically, the Wake Forest MSA program. The event, typically held in early January, is known as the Accounting Diversity Consortium and is funded by the Ernst & Young accounting firm.
Participants are given the opportunity to meet faculty members, students, and alumni of the school, and representatives from Ernst & Young. The goal of the consortium is to introduce prospective students to the program's curriculum, admissions process, and value of a master's degree in accountancy. Participant expenses, travel costs, and accommodations will be covered during the length of the program.
