Miami University's accountancy program at the Farmer School of Business continues to earn praise in the Public Accounting Report's 34th Annual Professors Survey-2015.

This year the undergraduate program is ranked 3rd among schools without doctoral programs. Among all universities, Miami's undergraduate program was ranked 17th.

The survey also ranks master’s programs, and Miami's MAcc (master's in accountancy) ranks 4th among schools without a doctoral program, coming in 20th among all universities with master's and doctoral accounting programs. That's up from 27th last year.
Job placement for Miami accountancy graduates is 99 percent.  The accountancy program is a target recruiting school for all of the major accounting firms as well as many consulting and business organizations.  

“The department of accountancy is very proud of our students, faculty and staff and appreciates the support the university has provided our programs. We are also thankful to the organizations who mentor our students, offer experiential learning opportunities and internships and actively recruit our graduates.  We continually strive to offer our students an excellent learning experience,” said Marc Rubin, chair of accountancy and PricewaterhouseCoopers Professor.

Hundreds of professors from nearly 200 U.S. colleges and universities participated in the 2015 survey, conducted in April. Among participants, 66 percent have worked for an accounting firm at some point in their careers.
