For the third consecutive year, the College of Business has been ranked among the top undergraduate business schools in the country, according to BusinessWeek magazine. Of 3,300 schools worldwide, only 111 received this recognition.
“Many of our alumni, friends, and students have been quick to express their pride in the College of Business. A special thanks goes to the College of Business faculty and staff for their contributions in this achievement. The quality of work that they do and their interaction with students play a significant role,” said Dr. Richard Casavant, Dean of the College of Business.
BusinessWeek used several criteria to rank business school programs: a student survey, a recruiter survey, median starting salaries for graduates, the number of graduates admitted to 35 top MBA programs, and an academic quality measure that consists of SAT/ACT test scores for business majors.
Additional criteria included full-time faculty-student ratios in the business program, average class size in core business classes, the percentage of business majors with internships, and the number of hours students spend preparing for class each week.
