For everything, there is a ranking. Accounting and business schools are no exception. If you're going to add another set of initials to your name, you might want to consider the quality of the source from which those initials are granted. Published rankings are not substitutes for due diligence in researching schools yourself, but they do give you an interesting look at how the pollsters regard the various schools and the programs they offer.

Here are some of the rankings we've uncovered in the past year.
