What People Are Saying


Prem Yerraballi

MBA '17
Current Position: Manager, Risk Advisory Services, EY

“After doing much research, I felt Wake Forest was the choice for me. The faculty have been phenomenal and I've been impressed with the amount of learning I've gained through my classmates. In just the first year of the program, I changed jobs and secured a 50 percent increase in my salary.”

Kate Calder

MBA '18
Current Position: Vice President, Senior Audit Manager

“Working full time with an unpredictable schedule would not have allowed me to commit to an MBA program out of town. I am so grateful I can attend such a high caliber program right here in the city where I work and live on Saturdays. This MBA program has expanded my leadership and technical skills so I can be better at what I do. This degree contributes to my credibility at work.”
