For the first time, the UW-Madison School of Business was ranked within the top 25 business schools in the country by Bloomberg Businessweek, a magazine that has been ranking top undergraduate business schools each year since 2006.
Ranked the nation’s 24th-best business school, the institution experienced a three-spot increase from last year.
Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business received the highest ranking, followed by the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce and Cornell University’s Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management.
Within the Big Ten Conference, three other business schools ranked in the top 25. University of Michigan-Ann Arbor’s business school ranked the highest at sixth, followed by the University of Indiana-Bloomington at 16 and Penn State at 22.
On its website, Businessweek said its ranking process involves nine measures of student satisfaction, post-graduation outcomes and academic quality. To determine these factors, the magazine surveyed 86,000 students from the 142 eligible programs along with 749 corporate business recruiters.
