Best Value Schools is an organization based out of Utah that aims to compile resources for students to make the decisions about post-secondary education less confusing. They create lists of top ranked schools for different subjects and strengths in the hope that prospective students can find a degree program and school that fits their individual needs.

Their ranking methodology is created using a formula that considers a school’s yearly tuition rate and its graduation rate. The formula takes this rate and adds a multiple equivalent to the percentage of enrolled students who did not graduate from the school. The lower the rating, the higher a school ranks on their list.

Besides offering an associate degree in accounting, Keiser University also offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting. The Master of Accountancy program is available fully online through the online graduate school.
