Why Yes, We Do Have Another List of the Best Online Accounting Degree Programs In 2019

If you haven’t grown tired of websites trying to explain why Clarion University and the University of the Cumberlands have better online master’s in accounting degree programs than, say, the University of Arizona and the University of Maryland, then we present to you this ranking from Accounting Degree Review.

For this list of the 50 best online accounting degree programs, ADR selected and ranked programs based on publicly available information regarding reputation and prestige, student satisfaction, and affordability and value. In addition, all of the online accounting degree programs in ADR’s ranking are from regionally accredited colleges and universities.

The only good thing I can say about this ranking is I’ve had it open in a tab on Google Chrome for about two weeks, and now, thankfully, I can finally close it.
