Using the L.E.A.D. (Leadership and Ethics in Accounting Decisions) model, developed by Bloch accounting faculty and executives on the Accounting Advisory Council, the Bloch School prepares our accounting students by teaching deep technical competency as well as soft skills such as interpersonal communication and ethics, to transform tomorrow’s talent in the accounting sector.

The rigor of the Bloch Accounting program is evidenced by the fact our program is ranked top 5 in the nation among medium-size schools for CPA pass rate.
