100 Best Accounting schools in the United States

Below is the list of best universities in the United States ranked based on their research performance in Accounting. A graph of 1.79M citations received by 34.9K academic papers made by 253 universities in the United States was used to calculate publications' ratings, which then were adjusted for release dates and added to final scores.

We don't distinguish undergraduate and graduate programs nor do we adjust for current majors offered. You can find information about granted degrees on a university page but always double-check with an official site as it's constantly changing data.
