Accounting and finance is the 219th most popular degree in America, with 933 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #220 Mathematics and Computer Science, and narrowly lost to #218 Applied Psychology.

The degree is offered at a total of 43 colleges across the nation, and is the 295th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 2% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 38% of colleges offering accounting and finance are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The new england produces the most accounting and finance graduates, largely led by Bentley University, while it’s the Northeast 10 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, Pennsylvania ranks highest, with particular help from Bucknell University and Drexel University.

All that being said, no individual school produces more accounting and finance graduates than Strayer University-District of Columbia, which graduated 181 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study accounting and finance). More students studied accounting and finance as a percentage of total students at Hiram College than any other college.
