EUGENE, Ore., Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016 rankings for the Most Affordable Online Masters in Accounting Degrees and the Most Affordable Bachelors in Accounting Degrees.
Accounting continues to be a profession that is always in demand. Professionals who work in this field are not just about numbers; professionals also have a mastery of the law, the tax code, and economics. It's a well-rounded and stable career that many students are interested in pursuing.
But how does a student know which online school is best for them? These rankings are a great place to start.
Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, had this to say about the online rankings for undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting: "There is a reason that most of the world's oldest documents are records of financial transactions: as long as there is civilization, someone needs to be watching the books. That urgency has translated into accounting being one of the most stable professions around." Both rankings were created using the same factors. These include academic reputation, online programs and features, time to completion of the degree, overall education costs, student satisfaction, and employment rates after graduation. All of the educational programs listed were ranked based on information pulled from a school's online portal and reputable ranking websites.
The College Choice 2016 ranking for Most Affordable Online Masters in Accounting Degrees is led by Western Governors University. It is followed by American Public University and Western International University.
