UQ Business School ranked second in the world for Accounting Research

2 Feb 2018

Brigham Young University (BYU) have announced their preliminary rankings for universities world-wide, with The University of Queensland (UQ) Business School achieving equal second for its research in management accounting.

Ranked in line with Harvard Business School, and ahead of some of the world’s leading institutions including HEC Paris and the LSE, this result reinforces the university’s position as a world-class business school.  

Dean and Head of School for UQ Business School, Professor Julie Cogin said the second place ranking is a coup for the university’s finance and accounting department and follows an already successful beginning to the year for UQ Business School.

“Being recognised by the BYU Accounting Rankings is an excellent result and a great reflection of management accounting expertise within the UQ Business School,” said Professor Cogin.

“This month, UQ Business School was recognised as one of the top five per cent of business schools worldwide by the AACSB.

“The dedication of our academic staff, approaches to teaching, and excellence in research has cemented our school as a top competitor amongst the most prestigious universities in the world and we look forward to the ongoing challenge of excellence and improvement,” she said. 

This prestigious ranking for UQ Business School falls within the BYU Accounting Rankings’ ‘Other Methods’ category, which assesses performance in survey and field research in management accounting.

The official rankings will be announced on 9 February, 2018. Read the full list of rankings here.
