Brigham Young University
From PhD Prep Track
Brigham Young University (BYU) is a large, private university located in Provo, Utah, which is just south of Salt Lake City. The school is owned and operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
School of Accountancy
In 1993, the American Accounting Association awarded BYU the Innovation in Accounting Education Award for its work in restructuring its undergraduate accounting program. The first year of the undergraduate program, referred to as the Junior Core, is a fast-paced program that integrates courses in auditing, information systems, taxation, financial accounting, and managerial accounting. The Junior Core is structured so that material covered in one subject area is complemented by material covered in each of the other subject areas. Additionally, the Junior Core offers weekly lab days to help instruct students in the "soft" skills that are necessary for success in today's competitive business market.
Following completion of the Junior Core, many students choose to complete a Master of Accountancy at BYU.
The graduate and undergraduate programs are consistently ranked among the top-three in the country.
LDS Church Information
