EUGENE, Ore., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published a ranking of the 35 Best Online Bachelor's in Accounting Degrees.
The American Institute of CPAs, the profession's official organization, has referred to a degree in accounting as "the one degree with 360 degrees of possibility." This is because accounting is so basic to business. Whether you are interested in a career in an accounting firm, in government or entrepreneurship, or in finance or corporate management, accounting skills are paramount to good business and always in demand.
"Completing a degree online is becoming increasingly common, and it isn't difficult to find high-quality, accredited degree programs in accounting," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking.

So we at College Choice have done the leg-work for you and come up with a list of the top 35 online bachelor's in accounting programs."
