Evaluation of the 2014 Best Undergraduate Accounting Programs as Compared to the 2004 Top Undergraduate Accounting Programs
Moore, Paula Hearn; Griffin, Richard B.
Journal of Academic Administration in Higher Education, v13 n1 p7-18 Spr 2017
This paper describes and compares the profiles of the top accounting programs in the United States as identified by "U.S. News and World Report" in 2004 with the profiles of the top accounting programs in the United States as identified by the "Accounting Degree Review" in 2014. The "Accounting Degree Review"'s list is a weighted average based on the rankings in "U.S. News and World Report," "Bloomberg Business Week," and "Public Accounting Report." A thorough examination of each schools web site has been conducted to gather information concerning the requirements for an undergraduate degree in accounting from two points in time over a ten year span (2004 and 2014). Course descriptions rather than simply course titles have been evaluated for each accounting course included in the business core and requirements of the accounting major. The emphasis of the study is, not only to develop a profile of top programs but also, to determine changes within accounting programs during the period from 2004 to 2014.
