I truly cannot say enough good things about the Wingate MAC program. I came from a very large school and was nervous about the transition and I was met with a welcoming faculty, great classmates and some of the best accounting instruction have ever had.  I loved the smaller class sizes and the ability to really get to know my peers as well as the faculty. It was very easy to develop a strong relationship with the professors which allowed them to help you pursue opportunities in your career.  I really liked that the program didn’t just teach to help you pass a test or check a box; they taught to truly deepen your knowledge of accounting. I think that the Wingate MAC program was an amazing program and truly deepened my knowledge of accounting and the affordability was an added perk. The level of one on one instruction is truly priceless and I think that Wingate offers the most well rounded accounting education of any of the programs I have seen and truly prepares you for a long career in accounting.Shanna Rizzo, Tax Associate at GreerWalker CPA's and Advisors
