Every student interested in the accounting profession wants the best accounting training they can locate and afford. All accredited undergraduate business schools provide good accounting training that is recognized by the employment market. The answer to the question “Which is the best for me?” becomes as much a personal decision as an education choice.
Get as much information as possible: through the Internet, library, family, and friends, to make a comfortable selection. If you have an idea about your specific career goals, examine the curriculum of any accounting school that interests you. While the majority of core courses will be similar at all top business schools, some may have electives that better fit your career desires than others. Another effective source of information is current and former student comments. You can try to get this information from accounting universities' alumni office or website (knowing that comments will, of course, be positive) and searching the ‘Net for student or alumni blogs or other sites giving candid comments.
When all of your evaluation efforts are complete, the best accounting training will be offered by the college or university that you judge to offer the best accounting degree program that “fits” your desires. Whether online or on campus, all of these accounting schools are good; you will decide which is “best."
