Accountancy Students Rank Ninth Nationally

According to the recently released report by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, Truman’s Master of Accountancy students ranked ninth in the nation for the percentage of students passing all four parts of the May 2009 Certified Public Accountant exam on the first attempt.

This achievement puts Truman students in the company of those from Wake Forest University, the University of Michigan and Notre Dame University. Truman also surpassed Loyola University of Chicago, Marquette University and Texas A&M University.

On the individual exams, Truman students ranked fourth in the nation on Regulation.

Missouri was named one of 25 honor roll states. This designation is reserved for states whose candidates achieved passing grades in every subject area at a rate higher than the national average.

For the past five out of seven years, Truman students have ranked in the top 10 in the nation. Seventy-one percent of the Truman students passed all four parts on the first attempt, compared to the national average of 8 percent.

Truman and the School of Business are known for their history of assessing and monitoring the educational process to ensure student success. Faculty members in the accounting program credit Truman’s consistent high achievement on the CPA exam to a number of factors, including bright students, a rigorous curriculum and an emphasis on student learning.

Truman 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 premier accrediting agency for schools and programs of business.
