The SMU Cox School of Business continues to live up to its prestigious name after making multiple rankings in 2015.

This year the business school ranked among the top ten in business analysis and finance, adding to its long list of accomplishments from past rankings.

According to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, students graduating from the SMU Cox Master of Science in Accounting program in 2014 had a “75.7% pass rate for the CPA exam, well above the national average of 49.7%. Almost two-thirds of 2014 Cox MSA students passed all four sections of the CPA exam by the end of 2014.”

Southern Methodist University topped other national lists and even made worldwide rankings.

The Financial Engineer’s 2015 Master of Business Analytics Rankings is one of the most wide-ranging rankings for graduate business analytics programs in the United States.

SMU made the top ten, ranking number seven. Another Texas school, the University of Texas at Austin, ranked fifth after top-ranked New York University.

SMU also outranked a number of universities in the Financial Times Global MBA 2015 specialty rankings.

According to the SMU Cox website, the publication comprises its top 10 ranking on universities’ “finance program and other specialty findings on feedback provided by MBA alumni three years after graduation.”

The Cox School of Business Graduate Program ranked No. 10 on the list, being the only business school in Texas to make it in the publication this year.

Kumar Venkataraman, Cox finance department chair and James M. Collins, Chair in Finance, made statements regarding SMU’s high ranking in the Financial Times on the Cox website.

“We are very encouraged that our alumni highly rank the Cox experience three years after graduation,” said Venkataraman and Collins. “It is a testament to the rigorous, applied finance curriculum that helps solve real world problems.”
