BYU accounting programs move up to second place nationally

According to Public Accounting Report magazine

Public Accounting Report, a top accounting trade publication, ranked Brigham Young University’s undergraduate and graduate accounting programs second in its 2005 annual survey. Both programs at BYU’s Marriott School of Management moved up one spot from last year’s rankings, marking the 10th consecutive year that the school’s undergraduate and graduate programs have been among the top three in the nation.

“We are delighted with this recognition of the program,” says Kevin D. Stocks, director of the School of Accountancy. “We believe we have a quality program with great students and a great faculty. It’s gratifying to have this acknowledgement from our peers.”

The rankings are based solely on a survey of accounting professors and department heads to determine the most admired undergraduate, graduate and doctoral accounting programs in the country.

“Some of the contributors to our strong showing are undoubtedly the success of our pre-Ph.D. program and the strength of our faculty,” says Ned C. Hill, Marriott School dean. “We commend our wonderful students — both those going on for Ph.D.s and those entering the workforce — for their strong values and professional skills.”

This year’s top ranked undergraduate programs are University of Texas, BYU, University of Notre Dame, University of Southern California and University of Illinois. The top master-level programs are: University of Texas, BYU, University of Illinois, University of Notre Dame and University of Southern California. Twenty-five programs were ranked at the undergraduate, graduate and doctoral levels.
