by Ritter Hoy, university news and communications

Miami University's master of accountancy degree at the Farmer School of Business has been ranked No. 7 by College Choice in its 2016 Best Master's in Accounting Programs.

The rankings are designed for prospective accounting students and are based on academic quality, student satisfaction, reputation in the field and return on investment.

College Choices says, “Accounting classes provided at Miami University (Ohio) are among the best in the state and provide in-depth knowledge and experience of accounting and finance.”

The rankings also highlight Miami’s optional term at the International Summer School at the University of Seoul, where finance classes are taught in English and students participate in experiential field trips.

In the current market, accountancy ranks as the third best job with a median salary of about $66,000. Additionally, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a growth of nearly 150,000 jobs in the industry by 2024.

Miami’s program qualifies students to sit for the CPA exam in Ohio and most other states upon completion.
