Berg-Falcon Master of Accountancy Program
Berg-Falcon Scholarship

Through a partnership with Bowling Green State University, each year Heidelberg's top senior accounting major earns a tuition scholarship for BGSU’s Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Program. Earning the MAcc provides the additional hours of education required for CPA licensure while also better preparing students for the CPA exam and careers in accounting.

Allison recently graduated with her Masters in Accounting, passed the four sections of the Certified Public Accountant Examination, and started working at Ernst and Young in their assurance department.

During my time at Heidelberg, I was able to form personal relationships with faculty and staff members who supported me both in and outside the classroom. My professors worked with me to arrange the internship that led to my future employment, and I am so thankful for their guidance.
