College of Business Chancellor's Medallion Recipient

Emily Wolney received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in accounting and a minor in criminal justice. Having earned a GPA of 3.82, she graduated with the honor of High Distinction. In addition to receiving the Dean’s Scholarship in 2015, Wolney has been on the Dean’s List for six semesters. She was also awarded the Michigan Competitive Scholarship, the Richard E. Czarnecki Endowed Scholarship, and the Financial Executives International Scholarship. 

Along with her academic accomplishments, Wolney has been very engaged with extracurricular activities such as her efforts in Beta Alpha Psi, an honors organization for accounting, finance, and ISM students. She first served as vice president and then president of the organization where she coordinated service activities and professional development events. She was also inducted into Beta Gamma Sigma International Honor Society last year. In addition to her work on campus, Wolney’s volunteered with many community organizations including Gleaners, Ronald McDonald House, and Methodist Children’s Home Society.

During her college career, Wolney had internships with two different firms – one at Masco on the State and Local Tax Team, and another at Plante Moran where she was an Assurance Intern. Wolney left an impression on both companies, as one asked her to extend her internship; the other offered her a full-time position post-graduation. 

After graduation, Wolney plans study for the GMAT to eventually puruse an MBA and balance that with her continued volunteer efforts. She has accepted a full-time position with Ford Motor Company and will be joining them in their finance division in the Career Foundation Program.
