Accountancy department ranks sixth in nation
Miami University’s undergraduate accounting program is sixth in the nation, according to CPA Personnel Report’s 20th Annual Professors’ Survey — 2001.
More than 150 accounting department chairs and professors from colleges and universities throughout the United States ranked undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs.
Miami’s undergraduate program is consistently listed among the 10 best in the nation, having been ranked 8th in 1999 and 9th in 2000.
For the first time, Miami’s graduate accounting program also made the survey’s top 20 graduate programs: It is ranked as 18th best in the nation.
"Miami has always been known as providing an excellent undergraduate liberal arts education, so it’s quite an accomplishment for a graduate program to receive this recognition," said John Cumming (chair, accountancy).
As a result of CPA exam requirements jumping to 150 hours for students, Miami’s and other accounting master’s programs have grown substantially: Miami’s enrollment went from 14 to 50 students in two years.
That growth and competition among schools for graduate students has brought recognition for Miami’s program, Cumming added.
