As schools continue to face each other on the court in the men’s and women’s March Madness tournaments, one has to wonder: How did these schools’ students do on the CPA Exam?

To answer this, NASBA went ahead and created their own brackets using the first and second round teams from the men’s and women’s tournaments, respectively. The winning schools for each match up is determined not by how their basketball team performs on the court, but by how their accounting students do the first time they take the CPA Exam.

(All data used comes from NASBA’s 2014 Candidate Performance Book, which is available for purchase at
