The U.S. News & World Report rankings of undergraduate business programs were announced this morning. These rankings are based entirely on the perception of our performance by deans and faculty at other business schools as captured by a survey conducted by the magazine.
Like last year, our undergraduate program ranks 14th in the country and 7th among public research universities. To view the full ranking, visit: http://colleges.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-colleges/rankings/business
Two programs within the Wisconsin School of Business retain their rankings within the magazine's top-five list of specialties. The Real Estate program again ranks second and the Risk Management and Insurance program climbs up from fourth to third in the nation. The Marketing program ranks 9th, our Quantitative Analysis courses rank 12th, the Management program ranks 18th, the Accounting program ranks 19th, and the Finance program ranks 22nd. We will be giving this and other rankings due consideration as part of our ongoing conversation.
Continued focus on our values and our tradition of innovation will drive us to leadership. It’s my challenge to provide the environment necessary to achieve greatness together.
