ANDERSON SCHOOL ACCOUNTING DEPARTMENT RANKS HIGH IN RESEARCH PRODUCTIVITY

March 15, 2011

(Albuquerque, NM) A recent Brigham Young University study examined the research productivity of accounting departments and faculty from universities around the world by measuring the number of publications that appeared in 11 elite academic accounting journals over a span of 20 years.

Over this period of time, Anderson ranked first in the world for publications that focus on financial accounting using qualitative methods, fourth in the world across all topics using qualitative methods, and 88/670 for total publications in these journals.

Dr. Craig White, Anderson's Accounting Department Chair, says these rankings reflect the recognition of the quality of the department's faculty among accounting educators, both national and international. This quality translates into ongoing educational value for UNM accounting students.
