January 12, 2021

The College of Business was recognized as having one of the best undergraduate business programs in the U.S.

Poets&Quants, a leading online publication for undergraduate business education news, has unveiled its fifth annual Best Undergraduate Business Schools rankings, which placed the College of Business (COB) among the best in the nation. In a comprehensive assessment of undergraduate business programs, the publication ranked COB #67, up four places from last year, and ahead of schools such as Ohio State, Iowa State, and George Washington University. Together, the ranked schools in this report represent the top 12% of more than 840 business schools accredited by AACSB International, the main accrediting body for business education.

“This ranking is a further testament to the dedication and caliber of our superb faculty and staff, and to the quality of our BBA students,” said Raju Balakrishnan, dean of the College of Business. “I am proud to be working alongside such a talented group of colleagues.”

The publication compiled the 2021 rankings based on a representative survey of alumni and an extensive set of school-reported data that considers factors such as admission standards, academic experience and career outcomes.

The Poets&Quants ranking methodology is unique in that it was developed in collaboration with business school deans and administrators. Learn more about the 2021 rankings methodology and view the College of Business school profile.
