The University of Sydney Business School's accounting and finance courses are amongst the best in the world according to the highly respected QS World University Rankings published by the London based firm, Quacquarelli Symonds.
The annual QS rankings compares the performance of universities around the world by subject area.
Accounting and Finance, which ranked at number nine, was amongst three University of Sydney subject areas to appear in the QS top ten. The others were Education (8) and Law (10).
"This is a very pleasing result," said Professor Tyrone Carlin, Co-Dean of the Business School. "It is yet another indication that we are well on the way to achieving our aim of joining the world's top 50 business schools."
"The staff in our disciplines of Accounting and Finance are to be commended for their commitment to developing and delivering world class programs in these two key areas of study," Professor Carlin added.
The Discipline of Accounting is an established leader in teaching and research in the field of accounting and has an outstanding international reputation for research, learning and the development of educational resources.
