Accounting Professor Featured on WalletHub

Gwynedd Mercy University professors are experts in their fields, with most of them having decades of experience working directly in those industries. They are able to bring their real-world experiences into the classroom, something that is not lost on GMercyU students.

"Rather than read directly from a PowerPoint or textbook, the teachers share their knowledge and life experiences with students --something that made me feel comfortable and excited to know that I would be taught by experienced and seasoned professors who are indeed 'experts' in their fields," Senior Management student Craig Vinciguerra said.

Assistant Professor of Accounting Carlo Silvesti, CPA, CGMA, MBA is one of those professors. Professor Silvesti spent 35 years as a financial officer and is very active in the accounting community. He served as president of the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants and currently serves on the chapter's Colleges and Universities Committee and the Accounting and Auditing Committee.

Professor Silvesti is often called on to share his experience and knowledge, most recently for WalletHub. In his latest piece, Professor Silvesti shares what people should know about their credit score and why it's important.

"Most people do not check their credit scores often enough," Professor Silvesti told WalletHub. "Everyone should check their score at least annually."
