This paper examines primarily the courses in the accounting major and a portion of the business core of the best thirty accounting programs in the United States as identified by the Accounting Degree Review. A thorough examination of each school's web site has been conducted to gather current (2014) information concerning the requirements for a degree in accounting. Course descriptions rather than simply course titles have been evaluated for each accounting course included in the business core and accounting major requirement. The emphasis of the study is, not only to develop a profile from the best programs but also, to compare accounting programs at public and private schools. Also, possible differences between accounting programs in schools with Accounting accreditation and schools with Business accreditation are shown.
