The James Madison University (JMU) Masters of Accounting class of 2015 graduates had the highest pass rate out of 78 programs with more than 20 graduates sitting for the exam. This outcome marks the second time that JMU’s program has had the highest pass rate. Our program had the same results in 2010. According to data from the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA), the 27 alumni sitting for the exam had a 95.2% pass rate and an average score of 85.8. These statistics put JMU ahead of 77 other universities, including Wake Forest University, Baylor University, the University of Notre Dame and Brigham Young University. Congratulations to the Masters of Accounting graduates and faculty for this outstanding achievement.
