School of Accounting Moves Up National Rankings in 2012

The School of Accounting at the David Eccles School of Business continues to make noise nationally for its quality, which is reflected in the new school rankings just released by the Public Accounting Report. The Masters of Accounting, or MAcc, program moved up to No. 24 in the nation for 2012, jumping six spots from its 2011 ranking at No. 30.

Both the undergraduate Accounting and the MAcc programs were recognized as Top 10 level when compared to similar-sized universities—those with between 16 and 21 full-time Accounting faculty members.

The undergraduate Accounting program sits at No. 8 nationally among similar-sized schools, while the MAcc program lands at No. 9 among similar-sized programs for 2012. Only the University of Washington and the University of Arizona ranked higher among Pac-12 schools, and among schools west of the Mississippi River.

The Public Accounting Report bases its rankings on professors’ rankings of Accounting programs at American colleges and universities, as well as published Accounting department faculty data.
