The Texas Wesleyan School of Business Administration has been ranked No. 12 in Online Accounting Degree Programs' list of the top 30 small college business programs in the United States.
Only schools with undergraduate populations of fewer than 4,000 students were eligible for the rankings. Other colleges and universities honored include Richmond, Loyola Marymount, Washington & Lee, Creighton, Babson and top-ranked Bentley.
No other schools from Texas made the list.
"To be the No. 12 school on this list is a very big honor, and speaks volumes about the quality and value of a Texas Wesleyan business degree," said President Frederick G. Slabach.
In addition to school size, the rankings considered institutional organization, awards and recognition, the availability of student opportunities and variety of business-related majors.
"We take pride in our ability to offer real-world projects to our students through partnerships with major corporations and undergraduate research opportunities," said Hector Quintanilla, Ph.D., CPA, dean of the School of Business Administration. "Our programs develop the critical thinking skills that prepare them for MBA programs and professional careers."
The business school, which offers an MBA and a BBA with undergraduate degree concentrations in accounting, forensic accounting, finance, general business, management and marketing, earned accreditation with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) in May 2014.
Fewer than 5 percent of the world's business schools are AACSB accredited, and 12 AACSB schools made the top 30.
