School of Business Maintains High Standards

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.
