The J.M. Tull School of Accounting at the University of Georgia was named one of the Top 10 Most Admired Accounting Programs in a new ranking released by Public Accounting Report.

The Tull School is the fourth most admired program among public schools and ranked 10th overall.

“This is the first time the question about ‘Most Admired Programs’ has been included in the survey, so I was especially thrilled to see that we are so highly regarded,” said Ted Christensen, director of the Tull School of Accounting. “This ranking speaks to the national reputation of our faculty, the rich education our students receive, their preparation for the CPA exam, and their level of success after entering the professional world.”

Tull is an accredited school of accounting within UGA’s Terry College of Business.

The Tull School also fared well in all three degree program rankings reported in the annual survey. The undergraduate program retained its 11th overall ranking (8th among public institutions). The master’s and doctoral programs each ranked 13th overall (10th among publics).

The Public Accounting Report survey is the only one in which accounting faculty rank the best accounting programs in the nation. Nearly 1,000 accounting professors from 200 college and universities participated in this year’s survey.
