Here Are the 10 Best Colleges for Accounting in the US

4. The Charles H. Lundquist College of Business at University of Oregon

Love your sports but don’t have the genes to excel professionally on the field? Become an athlete’s accountant at the University of Oregon! The Lundquist College of Business was founded in 1914 and has built an arsenal of accounting programs within, from undergraduate to MBA and then extending to Executive MBA, Master of Science in Sports Product Management, Master of Accounting, Master of Science in Finance, and Ph.D. Five faculties support all of this learning and research, including accounting, finance, marketing, business analytics, management, and operations.

3. Bloomfield College

Spend your weekdays studying in the quiet residential area of Bloomfield, New Jersey and live it up in NYC on the weekends; it’s a short 15 miles away. Bloomfield College’s mission is to attain academic, personal, and professional excellence in a multicultural and global society and that’s part of why the college feels more accessible than most. This four-year private liberal arts college is perfect for commuters because of how reachable it is by train, car, or bus; once there, the 11-acre, the tree-lined campus offers a pleasant respite. Bloomfield is related to the Presbyterian Church and is a member of the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities. General accounting there covers taxation, cost accounting, capital management, money, and banking, for the student who wants to work with small businesses, financial institutions, and non-profits.

2. The Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech University

They call it The 150-hour Program in Accounting at Rawls Business (aka Jerry S. Rawls College of Business Administration), and it instills in students a thorough understanding of core accounting, and advanced studies in taxation, or auditing and financial reporting tracks. And if you didn’t know already that you are in Lubbock Texas, there’s a section of the undergraduate program in petroleum accounting too.

Formerly known as the Division of Commerce in 1942, the school went through its firs transformation by 1956, when it became the College of Business Administration. The school’s final name came about after a $25 million gift from alumnus Jerry S. Rawls. Students may combine their accounting degree with any number of programs, including architecture, agriculture, environmental toxicology, pharmacy, medicine, law, and even foreign language. And you may want to take a foreign language regardless if you want to take part in the popular International Business program, which helps Rawls Business students study abroad.

1. The Fisher School of Accounting at the University of Florida

Your first hint that the Fisher School of Accounting is fit for #1 in our rankings is the fact that it is consistently in the top 10 accounting programs at public universities in U.S., as ranked by the News and World Report, and the Public Accountant Report. Tied for the number two reason is the fact that their graduates’ pass rate on the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam is often twice that of the national average, or that the International Center for Research in Accounting and Auditing lives there. So does the office of the Journal of Accounting Literature.

The University of Florida had accounting programs since 1928 but not a full degree program until 1978, established by the Florida Board of Regents as a separate school within the Warrington College of Business Administration. Since then, the college has grown to approximately 750 undergraduate and 250 graduate students.
