Both the School of Business and its students are continuing to set high marks of achievement.
Earlier this year, the School maintained both its business and accounting accreditation by AACSB-International, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB accreditation is the hallmark of excellence in business and accounting education. Only 694 institutions worldwide hold AACSB accreditation and less than 5 percent of the world’s accounting programs have earned AACSB’s specialized accounting accreditation.
Additionally, Truman accounting graduates were among the top performers on the Uniform CPA Examination in 2013. Truman’s first-time pass rate of 75.9 percent ranked 33rd in the nation among all institutions with 10 or more candidates. Truman’s first-time candidates were 11th in the nation for medium-sized institutions (21-60 candidates). Both rankings place Truman in the top 4 percent of institutional performance nationally. Truman had 53 first-time candidates sitting for the CPA.
