Bloomberg Businessweek magazine has ranked the accounting program at University of Richmond's Robins School of Business among the country's 10 best.

The Robins School's accounting program came in at No. 7. Other top 10 programs were at Brigham Young, Notre Dame, California-Berkeley, Cornell, Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Tulsa, Southern Methodist, Wake Forest and Tulane.

The Robins School's accounting program annually has been noted among the country's best for decades by a variety of organizations and guidebooks that issue rankings. Combined with the demand for professional accountants, the recognition has garnered strong attention from employment recruiters. Virtually 100 percent of Robins accounting majors have job offers by February of the senior year.

As part of the magazine's research for its overall 2013 Best Undergraduate B-Schools article, published online last month, it asked students to grade specialty areas — such as accounting — at their own business schools from A to F. Bloomberg Businessweek will release other business specialty rankings each week into early summer.

The Robins School is the country's only fully accredited top-tier undergraduate business school that also is part of a top-tier liberal arts university. Bloomberg Businessweek previously recognized the Robins MBA program as one of the top 20 part-time MBA programs in the country. The school’s executive education division offers open enrollment courses and customized leadership development programs for individuals and businesses.
