Undergraduate accounting program ranks No. 7 in the nation, according to College Choice
For 2016, Rutgers ranked higher than University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, New York University’s Stern School of Business as well as the Zicklin School of Business at Baruch College, according to College Choice. See the complete ranking.
Accounting is one of Rutgers Business School’s traditional areas of strength, with faculty who are respected researchers and thought leaders. Rutgers also has strong ties with some of the world’s leading accounting firms.
College Choice, an online resource created to help students choose a college, said its 2016 list of the best bachelor’s degrees in accounting are based on factors actual college freshmen said were most important to their decision about what school to attend, including academic reputation, financial aid offerings, overall cost and the success of graduates in the post-college job market.
Its ranking data was derived from a variety of publicly available sources, including U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.com and is designed to help students and their parents select a school that will lead to success in the accounting field.
College Choice highlighted the success Rutgers Business School students have in landing impressive jobs after graduation – often after completing meaningful internships. Students who complete the undergraduate program at Rutgers find full-time jobs at such companies as PricewaterhouseCoopers, Prudential Insurance, Ernst & Young, New York Life and Johnson & Johnson.
Students in the program can choose to specialize in public accounting, tax accounting or government accounting. And those with ambitions of taking the CPA exam can enroll in a unique master’s program at Rutgers Business School that helps to fulfill the educational prerequisites.
