Program overview

The EDGE and PwC teams created an immersive learning experience that integrates rigorous D’Amore-McKim graduate-level coursework with PwC experiential learning opportunities. PwC’s While You Work – CPA Acceleration Program helps develop a workforce of the future that’s prepared to navigate the challenges associated with breakthrough technologies that are disrupting industries and changing the world of work.

A new pathway for earning a master’s degree

PwC’s fellowship combines real work experiences at PwC with a tuition-paid master’s degree program at the D’Amore-McKim School of Business at Northeastern University. This distinctive one-year program helps high-potential rising college seniors or recent college graduates earn the additional 30 credit hours they need to meet the 150-credit hour requirement for a CPA license.
