Kiely Strohmaier, MAcc 2011

Over 90,000 candidates sat for the Uniform CPA Examination in 2011. While passing the exam is an accomplishment in itself, earning a score within the top 100 or even top 50 is unthinkable for many test takers. Gonzaga University Masters of Accountancy graduate Kiely Strohmaier went one step beyond that by earning scores that placed her in the top 37 among 90,000 test takers.

Shelby Culp, MAcc 2012

Shelby Culp was not a typical MAcc student in many ways. Nearly 80% of students who enter the Master of Accountancy program at Gonzaga come in with an undergraduate degree in accounting, and many already have internship experience working in public accounting. However, as an applicant, Shelby demonstrated many of the attributes that are essential to being a successful student and accountant: a serious commitment to academic success, strong communication skills, and a true enthusiasm for the accounting profession.
