Meinders School of Business ranked number two out of 500
Oklahoma City University’s Meinders School of Business was ranked number two in the country in the 30 Great Small Colleges for an Accounting and Finance Degree list by the Master of Finance Degrees website.
The rank order among the top 30 schools — out of a pool of more than 500 — was determined by consensus of Master of Finance Degrees staff, “based solely on the presence of innovative and exceptional programs,” according to the report.
The organization noted OCU’s Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation and stated that “many accounting firms, including the so called ‘big four’ audit firms which are Deloitte, PwC, Ernst and Young, and KPMG recruit Oklahoma City University graduates.”
The organization considered universities with an enrollment of 3,000 students or less.
“Schools this size offer more opportunities to form relationships with professors that can be useful in the pursuit of work, and some have incredibly high job placement rates,” the list introduction states.
OCU earned the AACSB accreditation last year, joining the ranks of less than 5 percent of business schools worldwide.
No other colleges or universities in the state are currently ranked in any of the three categories. The other two categories are the 30 Best Master of Finance Degree Programs and Top 10 Best Online Master of Finance Degree Programs.
