Undergraduate Accounting Program Among Nation's Best

The recent Public Accounting Report's annual survey of accounting professors ranks Case Western Reserve University's undergraduate accounting program 24th best in the country.

It's the latest for the program in being recognized as an undergraduate leader. In the fall, the program was ranked 13th by Business Week magazine's "Undergraduate Specialty Programs" rankings.

Now in its 27th year, the Public Accounting Report survey ranks schools based on program perception by over 1,550 accounting educators. Schools must offer a bachelor's degree in accounting to be eligible.

"These rankings affirm our programs are earning the national recognition they deserve," said Larry Parker, chair of the accountancy department at the Weatherhead School of Management. "The very high quality of our students is becoming more recognized, as well as our innovative programs and the national leadership of many of our department faculty in academic and professional bodies."
