McCombs Accounting Maintains No. 1 Rankings Once Again

Texas Accounting Ranked #1 in NationFor the eighth year in a row, the Texas Master in Professional Accounting (MPA) program ranked #1 in the U.S. News and World Report survey of best graduate schools in the nation.

With the accounting faculty already topping the Brigham Young University’s Accounting Research Rankings for 2013, it is no surprise the program has maintained its status as a top ranked program.

Sharing his excitement, MPA Director Jim Franklin was honored by the ranking, “Our outstanding faculty led the way with top notch teaching and cutting edge research while our MPA Program Office professionals delivered unparalleled admissions, academic and career services that are tailored to the needs of our students.”

In addition, the University of Texas at Austin swept the Public Accounting Report’s (PAR) Annual Professors Survey earning number one rankings for our undergraduate, master’s and doctoral programs for the fourth year in a row.

The undergraduate accounting program has placed first or second for 22 years. The Texas MPA program has led the master’s program rankings for 19 out of the past 20 years. And our doctoral accounting program has taken the number one spot 10 times in the last 12 years.

Congratulations to the faculty, staff, alumni and students who have all contributed to the success of the MPA program!
