List of the best colleges for accounting. As Leopold Bloom once sang, "I spend my life accounting with figures and such." If this sounds like the life for you, then make sure to check out this list of the best accounting colleges ever. This list of top schools for accountants can help narrow down your college search to only the cream of the collegiate crop. That's right; every highest-ranked accounting school is accounted for -- you can bet on it. Just like aspiring Hollywood agents might want to work at one of "The Big Four" (ICM, CAA, WME, UTA), aspiring accountants might dream of working at the equally ruthless "Big Four" of audit firms (PwC, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, KPMG). Or, as with the case of those budding entertainment reps, an accounting student might want to end up working for a more boutique auditing firm. After studying as an undergraduate at one of these number one accounting colleges, you will be ready to help manage money and pretty soon investors will be investing time in hearing your allocation advice. Succeeding in finance requires a minimum of a bachelor's degree -- at least to be a Certified Public Accountant -- so your bookkeeping education must be taken seriously. Be the world's best cash flow forecaster by browsing the world's best accounting schools.
