CPA Exam Information by Kelly Cuene

Congratulations to recent accounting graduates from UW-Madison on their performance on the Uniform CPA Examination in 2010.  UW-Madison was 3rd for schools with top overall pass rates for first-time candidates without an advanced degree and 9th for schools with top overall pass rates for first time candidates with an advanced degree.  Great job!

For those students preparing to take the CPA exam in the coming months, please consider attending a CPA Information Session!  Kristen Fuhremann, Director of Professional Programs in Accounting is holding an informal session on Friday, January 27th at 11:00am in 2120 Grainger.  The purpose of the session is to share advice from previous graduates on the logistical nature of applying and sitting for the exam.
