Saint Peter’s University Ranks Among the Top Three Colleges and Universities in the State by NJBIZ Readers

Jersey City, N.J. – January 3, 2023 – Saint Peter’s University is proud to announce that it was ranked among the best in the state of New Jersey by NJBIZ readers in the 2022 NJBIZ Reader Rankings survey. Saint Peter’s was ranked among the top three in the Colleges/Universities category, M.B.A. Program category and the Accounting Degree Program category.

“We take great pride in this recognition from NJBIZ readers,” said Mary Kate Naatus, Ph.D., KPMG dean of the Frank J. Guarini School of Business at Saint Peter’s University. “The Reader Rankings is so important to us because it is truly a vote of confidence from our Saint Peter’s family as well as the business leaders who employ our graduates.”

The NJBIZ Reader Rankings award program began in 2017 and was designed to recognize the regard that NJBIZ readers have for the businesses in their communities. The annual survey features more than 50 categories and identifies leaders in a variety of industries ranging from banking, finance, insurance, education, health care, philanthropy, real estate and more. Three winners are selected in each category based on the number of votes that are received by NJBIZ readers.

The accounting program at Saint Peter’s recently established a pilot program developed in collaboration with PwC, a professional services firm providing services across two segments: Trust Solutions and Consulting Solutions. The pilot program is a paid, 30-credit post-bachelor experience offered by Saint Peter’s and work experience at PwC that will enable accounting students to earn the necessary credits for a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license in New Jersey through a “Work for Credit” program. In addition to providing this cutting-edge opportunity, Saint Peter’s accounting students also enjoy above average job placement rates.
