Department of Accounting, Business Ethics & Information Systems ranked 15th worldwide in research productivity
A recent study by Accounting and Finance ranked the Department of Accounting, Business Ethics & Information Systems at Rutgers Business School (RBS) 15th in the world in research productivity. Among public universities in the United States, RBS is 4th, behind only the universities of Michigan, Texas at Austin, and California at Berkeley. The department includes a number of world renowned scholars and is the home of the Rutgers Accounting Web – one of the oldest and largest accounting Internet sites in the world.
The department is committed to the advancement of knowledge and preparation of future leaders for business and academic careers through scholarly research, teaching, and service. “We strive to attract the best students, to whom we offer a supportive learning environment, characterized by a highly relevant contemporary curriculum and innovative pedagogical methods,” said Dan Palmon, PhD, Professor & Chair, Department of Accounting, Business Ethics & Information Systems.
More than 130 partners and principals in the “Big Four” firms (PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Ernst & Young, and KPMG) are Rutgers alumni, representing one of the single greatest concentrations from major business schools. Graduates of Rutgers accounting programs are highly sought by all major accounting firms and corporations.
The Masters Programs in Accounting at RBS feature exceptionally high placement rates upon graduation.
“We’ve had very good experiences hiring graduates through the MBA in Professional Accounting program,” said Peter McNamara, Partner, Investment Management, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Chair, Rutgers Business School Accounting Advisory Board. “Most of the students come into the program without a business background, but by the time they graduate, they are ready to sit for the CPA exam and are fully functional and ready to go in the work environment,” McNamara said.
With more than 270 degree programs with which to partner, RBS is uniquely capable of delivering cutting-edge multidisciplinary curricula that combine a mix of business, science, and technology skills required by today’s leading corporations.
