        Auburn University’s Online Bachelor of Science in Accounting program is ranked seventh nationally by DiscoverBusiness.us, which revealed its “2017 Best Value Online Accounting Degree” rankings on September 13. Degree programs offered by Auburn Accounting Online have received other recent accolades from U.S. News & World Report, Online Accounting Degree Programs, Affordable Colleges Online, and Accounting Degree Review.
