Truman Nationally Ranked on CPA Exam

According to newly released data from the National Association of State Boards of  Accountancy, Truman State University’s accounting students have ranked eighth in the nation for the percentage of its  students passing all four parts of the Uniform CPA Examination on the first attempt in 2007 (the most recent period of compilation). In four of the past six years, Truman  students have ranked in the top 10 of participating schools in the nation. 

In this particular testing period, 65 percent of the Truman students passed all four parts of  the exam on the first attempt. The national pass rate for first-time candidates for all exam sections is 7.5 percent. Missouri was named again one of the top 10 honor roll states. This designation is reserved for states whose candidates achieved pass rates higher than the national average.

The School of Business’ accounting program is well known for its history of assessing and  monitoring educational processes to ensure student success. Faculty members attribute strong student performance on the CPA exam to a “perfect storm” of factors which come together to create consistently high achievement values including bright students, a rigorous curriculum and an emphasis on student learning.

Truman’s School of Business is one of only 167 business schools in the world accredited in both business and accounting by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the foremost worldwide accrediting agency for schools and programs of business.
