University of Baltimore Graduates Lead Majority of Area's Largest Accounting Firms
 
pen and bar graph

Of the 25 largest accounting firms in metropolitan Baltimore, nearly half are led by alumni from the University of Baltimore—with the largest concentration bearing UB graduate degrees. University of Baltimore alumni are serving in top leadership positions at nine of these 25 firms; all but one of them earned a graduate degree from UB's Merrick School of Business or the School of Law.

UB's dominance in this category—as compiled in the Baltimore Business Journal's annual Book of Lists—has been steady going back at least 15 years. Consistently, UB has been a top producer of alumni leaders in accounting, with one or more of its graduates in the position of managing partner or its equivalent. In 2013, the University had its highest number of alumni represented so far, with 13 in the survey of the top 25 largest area firms. Year over year, UB's alumni numbers far surpass the representation of accounting graduates from other area institutions.
