Michigan Ross MAcc graduates shine on the CPA exam.

Since 2012, twelve Ross MAcc grads have been honored with the prestigious Elijah Watt Sells Award, which recognizes Uniform CPA Examination candidates who pass all sections of the exam on their first attempt within one calendar year,  achieving a cumulative average score greater than 95.50 across all four sections.

Earning the award is no small feat. In 2015, only 75 of the 93,742 candidates who sat for the exam met the criteria — and six of these bright individuals hailed from the Ross MAcc Program.

Here is a complete list of Ross MAcc grads who have earned the Elijah Watt Sells Award:

  • Melissa S. Bylsma, MAcc '05
  • Martha (Everett) Schrage, MAcc ‘12
  • Justin Teplitz, MAcc ‘13
  • Elizabeth Campbell, MAcc ‘14
  • Alex Engebretson, MAcc ‘15
  • Chia-Jen (Judy) Chang, MAcc ‘15
  • Charles Coop, MAcc ‘15
  • Lisa Marchlewski, MAcc ‘15
  • Michael Rozman Proppe, MAcc ‘15
  • Emily Slaga, MAcc ‘15
  • Xiaoyi (Alexis) Yan, MAcc '16
  • Kelly Coyne, MAcc '17
