National Rankings

Our Department of Accounting and Information Systems is committed to the university’s mission of “…conducting research of the highest caliber that seeks to answer questions and create solutions in order to expand human understanding and make a positive difference, both locally and globally.” For over two decades our department has been committed to research and to publishing quality articles at the highest levels.

The incredible commitment and success of our faculty has not gone unnoticed. Researchers at Brigham Young University measured the intellectual assets held by accounting and information systems research programs. They examined publications in the top peer-reviewed accounting journals and ranked departments over the last 6, 12, and 20 years. Michigan State University ranks consistently as #3 out of 506 institutions and our managerial accounting research is #1.  Their research, published in the article, “Accounting Program Research Rankings by Topical Area and Methodology” in Issues in Accounting Education, provides a detailed account of the rankings and the methodology.
