Dolan School Undergraduate Accounting Program Ranked #1 in Connecticut

The Dolan School of Business has been recognized once again for its accounting programs, this time being ranked #1 in Connecticut for its undergraduate accounting program according to Accounting Degree Review, an independent online resource which provides rankings and critical reviews of top accounting and finance degree programs. 

Accounting Degree Review also ranked the Dolan School’s graduate program #16 nationally among 50 other schools in the country, placing Fairfield on “The Top 50 Graduate Accounting Programs ranking list for 2016.”

The top 10 undergraduate list was formulated by reviewing how each school ranked according to influential publications and websites including U.S. News and World Report, Forbes, Bloomberg Business, Princeton Review and Tax Talent.

Three accounting rankings from U.S. News and World Report, Public Accounting Report and Brigham Young University were combined to create the 2016 list of “The Top 50 Graduate Accounting Programs.”

The rankings highlight Fairfield’s 11:1 student to faculty ratio, which fosters close relationships among professors and classmates while preparing students for success on the CPA exam and with “Big 4 employers.” The Dolan School’s accreditation from the prestigious AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business), which the school has held since 1977, was also considered.

 “This is terrific recognition for our accounting programs, which are distinguished from others by their emphasis on thoughtful interaction between faculty and students,” said Dr. Donald Gibson, dean of the Dolan School. “It’s an intense program, but when they are done, our students are highly prepared for entry into major accounting firms. And most of them go there.”
