WINSTON-SALEM, NC – Twelve Wake Forest University Schools of Business Master of Science in Accountancy students recently accepted an invitation to join Beta Gamma Sigma, the international honor society serving business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Election to lifetime membership in Beta Gamma Sigma is the highest recognition a business student can receive anywhere in the world.

The following students earned the honor of joining Beta Gamma Sigma this fall for ranking in the top 20% of their Master of Science in Accountancy (MSA) class: Caroline Bowman, Stephanie Cardwell, Victoria Chen, Adrian Cole, Claire Covington, Brett Hayes, Drew Heimbrock, Stacy Jiang, Shanay Martinez, Wes Matelich, Chandra Tripp and Alan Yang.

"I’m extremely proud of the academic accomplishments of these newly inducted members of Beta Gamma Sigma. These students epitomize the extremely bright and highly motivated students who enroll in our MSA program," said Jack Wilkerson, Senior Associate Dean of Accountancy Programs.

Graduates of Wake Forest's Master of Science in Accountancy program have earned the highest passing rate in the nation on the CPA exam in six of the past seven years, and historically 100% of the graduating Wake Forest MSA students have secured jobs prior to graduation.
