Master of Science (MS) in Accountancy Program in Conjunction with
Wake Forest University
F&M is pleased to announce its partnership with Wake Forest University in the area of Accounting. As part of this program, F&M students (of any major) are eligible to complete both a Bachelor of Arts at F&M and a Master of Science (Accountancy) at Wake Forest University over the span five years. Ideally, the student will complete four years at F&M, apply for admission to the Wake Forest program and then complete one full (fifth) year at Wake Forest. At the end of the five year experience, the student will be eligible to sit for the CPA exam.
Each year, as many as five Franklin & Marshall College applicants will receive a minimum $10,000 per semester tuition scholarship to Wake Forest.
Interested students should ideally complete BOS 224 (Accounting for Decision Making), BOS 324 (Analysis and Control) and BOS 360 (Finance) while enrolled at F&M. Other courses may be required/expected by Wake Forest. Students may also wish to major in BOS, but this is not required to be eligible for the Wake Forest program. Admission to the Wake Forest Master’s program is dependent on formal admission to Wake Forest University.
Interested F&M students should contact the Department Chair of BOS for more information about the program after consulting with their advisor. Students are strongly suggested to take BOS 224 and BOS 324 before considering this program.
