Connect with Your Future MSA Classmates, April 7-8, 2017

Meet the Firms
Meet the Firms is a networking event connecting our recruiting partners and those students who plan to pursue a 2018 winter internship. This is a unique opportunity for students to meet representatives from regional, national and Big 4 public accounting firms and learn about their service lines and career opportunities. The event also gives firms the chance to meet students in advance of fall recruiting. Meet the Firms is reserved for those students who have paid their MSA enrollment deposit.

Red Carpet Weekend
Red Carpet Weekend is an exclusive, invitation-only event for admitted and deposited MSA students. The schedule is full of activities that provide opportunities to connect with your future classmates, engage in team-building activities, meet faculty and staff, and become acclimated to Winston-Salem and the Wake Forest community. It’s also a great way to start the MSA onboarding process and learn how to prepare for your upcoming MSA experience. Participants are welcome to bring one guest. Red Carpet Weekend is a favorite annual event at the School of Business – you don’t want to miss it!
