Baruch College Ranks #20 Among Top U.S. Graduate Schools for Accounting 2014-2015
NEW YORK, NY- September 12, 2014 - Baruch College’s Zicklin School of Business is ranked #20 among the Top U.S. Graduate Schools for Accounting 2014-2015 by the Accounting Degree Review(ADR).
Methodology: To create its Top 50 list of the best accounting graduate programs in the nation, The Review took into account the results of four other rankings and the accounting accreditation of the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, or AACSB. The four rankings come from U.S. News and World Report, Public Accounting Report, Brigham Young University (BYU), and TaxTalent.
All the schools on the list hold business accreditation with AACSB. Most of them also earned accounting accreditation. ADR placed a lot of weight on this achievement because AACSB is the premier accrediting organization for business programs and less than two percent of business schools worldwide are AACSB-accredited in both business and accounting.
