There is great diversity throughout the Wake Forest University School of Business. At the center, our international students share their unique perspectives and cultures to help build a diverse community. We continue to welcome these students to Wake and watch them excel across our programs to secure top positions within a competitive market.

Below, we highlight a few international alumni from our top-ranked accelerated masters programs: the MS in Business Analytics, MS in Accountancy, and MS in Management programs.

The Market Readiness & Employment team really prepares international students for success after Wake Forest. [MRE] makes sure you’re ready to tackle that interview and highlight the differences you might have from American candidates — and how to make those a strength, not a weakness.”
