Wake Forest Accounting Diversity Consortium

January 2017 — Funded by EY

As part of our ongoing diversity initiatives, the School of Business invites college juniors and seniors from other campuses, including historically black colleges and universities, to learn more about careers in accounting and financial management, and specifically how the Wake Forest MSA program can prepare them to succeed in those professions. The two-day event, typically held in early January, is known as the Accounting Diversity Consortium and is funded by the EY accounting firm.

ADC participants are given the opportunity to meet faculty members, students and alumni of the School, as well as representatives from EY.

The goal of the consortium is to introduce prospective students to the MSA program’s curriculum and admissions process, while demonstrating the value of a master’s degree in accountancy.

Participant expenses, travel costs, and accommodations are covered for the event. Interested candidates must verify eligibility and apply online.
