WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.—Two Wake Forest University Schools of Business students have been selected to attend Fast Forward, a three-day leadership development program sponsored by KPMG LLP.

Natalie Friedman, a senior accountancy major from Southport, CT and Melanie Green, a senior accountancy major from Chester, VA will join more than 100 top students from the United States and Canada to attend this elite program in Hollywood California, July 27-29.

Students taking part in Fast Forward were chosen because they exhibit KPMG’s core values and are leaders on campus and in their communities.

“The Fast Forward program is a great opportunity for the top students at KPMG’s most heavily recruited business programs to get a head start on understanding the public accounting profession and how important their leadership skills will be as they pursue careers in audit, tax or advisory services,” said Stacy Sturgeon, KPMG National Managing Partner, University Relations and Recruiting

The program was created to provide participants with an inside look at a career in public accounting while building key skills that will help in all aspects of life. The curriculum, specifically designed for Fast Forward, is designed to teach students about the public accounting profession, KPMG and situational leadership.
