Six Ross Graduates Win Most Prestigious Accounting Award

Share

Every year, a select number of the highest scorers on the CPA exam receive the Elijah Watt Sells Award, recognizing their exceptional work and aptitude. Of the more than 93,000 CPA test takers in 2015, only 75 people scored high enough to qualify for the award. Ross grads from the Master of Accounting program made up eight percent of those high scorers - the highest number of award winners to come from one school.

The 2015 Elijah Watt Sells Award winners from the Ross MAcc program are:

  • Chia-Jen Chang, MAcc ‘15, is employed with EY in New York, N.Y.
  • Charles Coop, MAcc ‘15, is employed with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in New York, N.Y.

  • Michael Rozman Proppe, MAcc ‘15, is employed with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Detroit, Mich.

“This year’s winners earned the Elijah Watt Sells Award for their truly extraordinary performance on the CPA Exam,” said Michael Decker, American Institute of CPAs Vice President of Examinations.

In order to qualify for the award, test takers must score above 95.50 across four sections of the CPA exam on their first attempt.
