The Wake Forest University School of Business hosted Deac for a Día on February 24 on the Reynolda campus. The one-day event was designed to immerse Hispanic and Latinx prospective and admitted students into the Wake Forest School of Business and showcase how the School’s MS in Management, MS in Business Analytics, and MS in Accountancy programs can further prepare students for successful careers in business. Attendees had the opportunity to network with current graduate students, program faculty, admission staff, and career coaches and learned more about the pre-experience graduate business programs and student life at Wake Forest.

Connecting with others through shared stories, memories, and identities provides a sense of belonging and creates community, said Victoria Russell, Assistant Director and DEI Lead for Enrollment Management at the School of Business. “This is something I experienced at Wake Forest as an undergraduate and this is at the very heart of Deac for a Día. Having a community where you can express yourself and your experiences is essential.”
