Miami accountancy programs continue to excelJan 26, 2011
Undergraduate and graduate programs in accounting offered by Miami University's Farmer School of Business
continue to rank among the nation's best, according to this year's
annual survey of accounting professors conducted by Public Accounting
The survey of more than 1,700 college and university educators ranked Miami’s undergraduate program 17th and its Master of Accounting (MAcc) program 25th. Both programs are among the top five at schools that do not offer doctoral programs.
“I believe that this recognition by our peers is evidence that we are accomplishing our mission of providing excellence in accounting and business education,” said Marc Rubin, chair of the Farmer School’s department of accountancy.
“Our programs’ continued presence among the nation’s top 25 is testimony to the quality and commitment of our accountancy faculty,” said Roger Jenkins, dean of the Farmer School. “They are devoted to teaching and stay abreast of the rapid changes taking place within the profession worldwide. Because of the rigorous preparation our students receive, they are heavily recruited by the best accounting firms and distinguish themselves professionally.”
Public Accounting Report is the independent newsletter of the accounting profession. The survey of accounting educators asks on a scale of 1 to 10, “which programs consistently turn out students capable of some day attaining partner status?”
