Baylor Graduates Score Highest on CPA Exam

Accounting graduates from Baylor University have out-scored their Texas counterparts on Certified Public Accountant (CPA) Exams taken between January and March 2005 according to the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy.

“When you look at the programs that had more than 20 people sit for the exam, Baylor leads the pack with a combined average of 65.3 percent pass rate across the test sections,” Terry Maness, Dean of Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business told Newswise.

The high pass rate demonstrates the success of eliminating the boundaries among traditional accounting courses to achieve an integrated and innovative three-semester sequence. The process of using projects and case studies to link topics across the five traditional areas of accounting was begun eight years ago.

“These results demonstrate the quality of our program,” states Dr. Charles Davis, Chair of the Accounting and Business Law department. “Our grads have consistently earned the distinction of being in the list of Top Ten scorers on the CPA exam historically. I’m very proud of them.”
