The undergraduate accounting program at Mays Business School ranked 6th among U.S. public schools and 11th overall in the nation in the most recent analysis by The Accounting Degree Review, the leading accounting education website.
The 2014 Best Accounting School Super Ranking combines the three most influential undergraduate accounting school rankings from U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Public Accounting Report. Each of these accounting degree rankings uses a different methodology to select and rank accounting programs.
Jim Benjamin, head of the accounting department at Mays, considers the news very positive. “I am delighted with our consistently high rankings across multiple sources with very different methodologies,” he explained. “I believe these rankings affirm the dedication and ability of our faculty, the quality of our students, and the rigor and innovation in our programs.”
According the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as the economy improves and grows the demand for accountants is projected to grow as well. “Students who earn their accounting degree from a top-tier accounting program will be well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities in this growing field,” Adler said. “We believe this ranking provides prospective accounting students a useful starting point for their journey to the accounting degree program that is best for them.”
The Accounting Degree Review is an online publication dedicated to providing future accountants with the information they need to earn a degree in accounting. In addition to accounting program rankings and reviews, The Accounting Degree Review offers information on accounting scholarships, internship opportunities, career prospects, news, analysis and more.
