IPFW students fare well in CPA exams

February 24th, 2017

Greater Fort Wayne Business Weekly

A local university with a medium-sized accounting program ranked 38th in that group for the first time pass rate of its students taking the 2016 Uniform CPA Examinations.

That put Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne in the nationwide group’s top 13th percentile, according to results announced by the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, the university said in a statement.

“This positive outcome is a reflection of the dedication to student learning that is a hallmark of our accounting faculty,” Carl Drummond, vice chancellor of academic affairs and enrollment management, said in the statement. “Students in our post-baccalaureate certificate in accounting receive outstanding academic preparation at a reasonable cost of tuition.”

With 32 candidates in 72 examination sections, IPFW’s accounting students had an average score of 76.8 and a 62.5 percent pass rate, which compared with a nationwide first-time pass rate of 54.4 percent.

“We are very proud of our students and we believe this is one more reason why IPFW is such a great value,” Janet Papiernik, an associate professor who chairs the Accounting and Finance Department, said in a statement. “I feel very honored to be a part of the Doermer School of Business and proud of the academic achievement of our students.”
