Online collegiate database College Factual has announced its 2019 ranking of the top 50 accounting schools in the U.S.
The site took multiple factors into account, such as education quality, average earnings of graduates and accreditation, to determine its list. The site notes that instead of relying on subjective survey data, its rankings use “metrics that are outcomes-based (i.e., can these students actually make a living after graduation?)”
Bentley University took top honors, followed by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of Notre Dame. The top three accounting schools were noted for their graduate programs, size, and reputation among its competition.
