SIUE Students Rank Second in Illinois CPA Exam Results

March 28, 2016

SIUE ranked second among Illinois’ 12 public universities in the annual Certified Public Accounting (CPA) exam results. Scoring well above state and national averages, SIUE accounting graduates were runners-up to graduates from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

 “Our students did extremely well to place second in such a highly competitive environment,” said John Navin, PhD and dean of the SIUE School of Business. “Congratulations to the Department of Accounting’s leadership and faculty on their excellent work preparing our students.”

Michael Costigan, PhD and chair of the Accounting Department said, “These results reflect our graduates’ determined efforts and the quality of our accounting programs.”

The SIUE School of Business is among an elite 10 percent of business schools worldwide that have earned the prestigious seal of approval from the AACSB-I. Only 28 percent of business schools in the U.S. are accredited by the organization.
