Hometown: Qingdao, China
UG School: Wake Forest University
Major: Finance and Math

Why the WFU MSA? I really enjoyed my undergraduate experience here at Wake and wanted to spend one more year. Additionally, I really like how classes are designed for the FTS track and felt that I would actually learn a lot during the program rather than just fulfilling the credit hour requirement for the CPA.

Why an Ambassador? I’m excited to share my experience to the incoming students, especially to those who are still in the decision making process.

UG School: University of South Carolina
Major: International Business and Accounting

Why the WFU MSA? Wake Forest alumni are very well connected! Every time I speak to a MSA alumnus, they tell me about how they are still connected with people from the program. Many times these alumni are partners that have been out of school for a while. I also hear about connections they have with different Wake Forest alumni from other years. The thought of building a network that large and with such successful people was very attractive to me.

Why an Ambassador? Others sharing their experiences with me helped me choose Wake, and I wanted to do the same for someone else! I love that I will be able to answer the questions I know I had just a few months ago and help someone else make a very important decision.

Track: Audit
Hometown: Valdosta, GA
UG School: Mercer University
Major: Chemical Commerce, French

Why the WFU MSA? What really drew me was the personal and genuine interactions I had with the admissions staff, faculty, and professors. I was able to meet and talk to professors even before I had made my decision to attend Wake! I knew that I would receive a quality education and have professors who really cared about seeing me succeed in the classroom and beyond. The 3-semester program with an internship and individual career coaches were icing on the cake!

Why an Ambassador? Deciding on a graduate program can be insanely stressful and exciting- it wasn’t that long ago that I was in the same position that potential students are in now! I am most excited about helping students discover what it is they are looking for and need from a graduate program, telling them about what Wake has to offer, and sharing our stories with each other.

Why the WFU MSA? Wake Forest offers a unique track within the MSA program (Financial Transaction Services), which was the driving factor in my decision. Aside from academic excellence, Wake offers top-tier facilities, motivational career coaches, hands-on faculty, and a beautiful campus filled with friendly people. Ultimately, the preparation for success that Wake boasts is unmatched in academia.

Why an Ambassador? Being an ambassador is an exciting responsibility because it shows that the school has entrusted in you the ability to help in molding the future of the university.

Why the WFU MSA? I love Wake Forest so it seemed natural to me to stay for an extra year. I was also looking for a place where I knew I was going to be getting a great education and I would be able to focus on my studies. The fact that Wake has a highly respected accounting program and great professors that care about their students’ education only made me more sure of my decision to stay at Wake.

UG School: UNC – Chapel Hill
Major: English, Environmental Studies

Why the WFU MSA? My hometown is Winston-Salem. I also liked that this program is open to non-accounting majors. The high CPA pass rate, professional opportunities and optional internship were important as well.

Why an Ambassador? Looking forward to being a representative “townie” – many ambassadors can speak to the quality of the program/institution, but I also love the city. Also looking forward to interacting with non-accounting majors and learning their paths that led to choosing an MSA later.

Why the WFU MSA? I chose the Wake Forest MSA program based on the connections I was able to make during Wake’s Accounting Diversity Consortium. I met with teachers, advisors and support staff who made Wake seem like a great place to be. It also doesn’t hurt that we have the number one CPA pass rate as well.

Why an Ambassador? I am excited about being a student ambassador, as I get to share my enthusiasm about the MSA program and Winston-Salem. I enjoy meeting new individuals and this is a great opportunity to do so.
