Undergraduate and graduate programs in accounting offered by Miami University’s Farmer School of Business have moved higher in a national ranking, the Annual Survey of Accounting Professors, conducted by Public Accounting Report.
The survey of more than 1,900 college and university educators ranked Miami’s undergraduate program 17th and its master of accounting (MAcc) program 21st. Those programs stood at 22nd and 23rd, respectively, in the 2008 survey.
“It is very gratifying to have our programs, once again, achieve national recognition from faculty members of many other universities,” said Marc Rubin, chair of accountancy at Miami. “This is no easy task given the number of accounting programs available in the U.S., and is clearly an achievement of which we can all be proud.”
“Our programs’ continued presence among the nation’s top 25 is testimony to the quality and commitment of our accountancy faculty,” said Roger L. Jenkins, dean of the Farmer School. “They are intensely devoted to teaching and remain current on the rapid changes taking place within the profession worldwide. Because of the rigorous preparation our students receive from this faculty, 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?”
