The 2013 Best Accounting School Super Ranking combines the three most influential undergraduate accounting school rankings from U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg BusinessWeek and Public Accounting Report. As each of these accounting degree rankings brings a different methodology to bear in its selecting and ranking of accounting programs, by combining the results of each of them, "The Best Accounting School Super Ranking provides the most comprehensive, well-rounded ranking of top undergraduate accounting schools anywhere," says lead site editor Shane Adler.
According the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, as the economy improves and grows the demand for accountants is projected to grow as well. "Students who earn their accounting degree from a top-tier accounting program will be well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities in this growing field. We believe this ranking provides prospective accounting students a useful starting point for their journey to the accounting degree program that is best for them," Adler said.
