USU School of Accountancy Ranked 34th Nationally

Press Release

September 12, 2013

Logan —Public Accounting Report has ranked the School of Accountancy at the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University at 34th in the nation, with its graduate program at 37th.

This is the first year the graduate program has been nationally ranked by the Public Accounting Report. The undergraduate program made the list for the first time in 2012 when the publication ranked it 46th in the country. The rankings are based on a survey of accounting professors across the country.

The Public Accounting Report describes itself as the “leading provider of competitive intelligence for public accounting firms and the profession.” It is targeted at accounting firm partners and professionals, opinion leaders and industry observers.

Larry Walther, who heads the School of Accountancy, said he believes a number of things have raised the profile of the School of Accountancy.

“Creating a positive national reputation is a key part of our strategic plan,” Walther said. “It’s very pleasing to see some independent confirmation that we are succeeding in doing just that. When our students and faculty receive national recognition for their work, it opens doors for our graduates and, in the end, that’s a big part of what we are about: becoming career accelerators for our students and alumni.”
