Whitman School again ranked in top 50 undergraduate b-schools by Bloomberg Businessweek
The Whitman School of Management at Syracuse University held on to the No. 47 spot on Bloomberg Businessweek’s sixth annual ranking of “The Best Undergraduate Business Schools.” In 2010, Whitman was ranked 47 and in 2009 ranked 49.
With U.S. job growth still weak, business programs that top the latest Bloomberg Businessweek ranking are going global in a big way. Overall, the top 50 programs boasted dedicated alumni bases who offered support in job and internship placement; increased use of technology to communicate to recruiters and prospective students; and an emphasis on the importance of strong internships.
Bloomberg Businessweek used nine measures to rank programs, including surveys of senior business majors and corporate recruiters, median starting salaries for graduates and the number of alumni each program sends to top MBA programs. Bloomberg Businessweek also calculated an academic quality rating for each program by combining average SAT scores, student-faculty ratios, class size, the percentage of students with internships and the number of hours students devote to class work.
