Regis University College for Professional Studies (CPS) is proud to learn that one of our Master of Science in Accounting graduates, Michael Hoffer, is one of the winners of the esteemed Elijah Watt Sells Award. Originally from New Jersey, Hoffer is also a graduate of Business University in Vienna and is currently employed with Skidata AG in Austria.
The award was presented to candidates who obtained a cumulative average score above 95.50 across all four sections of the Uniform CPA Examination, completed testing during the previous calendar year and passed all four sections of the Examination on their first attempt.
Hoffer is one of only 37 people out of 90,000 CPAs to receive the Watt Sells Award. An impressive honor indeed!
The Sells award was created by the AICPA in 1923 in honor of Elijah Watt Sells, who passed away in 1924 as one of the country’s first CPAs under the provision of a New York State law enacted in 1896 and a leader in advancing professional education. He was active in the establishment of the AICPA and was a founder of New York University’s School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance.
