Pursuing a degree in accountancy at Miami will help you to develop a wide range of knowledge, skills, and abilities, and establish life-long partnerships that will provide an excellent foundation for a highly successful professional career in an increasingly dynamic business environment.

Our bachelor’s and master’s programs offer state of the art curriculum and co-curricular experiences led by world-class faculty who are passionate about Miami’s educational mission and eager to mentor students. Further, Miami’s accountancy programs are rare in that they are large enough to attract the attention of top recruiters (e.g., Miami is a target university for many top public accounting firms) but small enough to guarantee personal attention from full-time, highly dedicated faculty members.

For these reasons, among others, Miami’s accountancy programs consistently rank in the Top 25 in the nation, according to the Public Accountancy Report.
