The University of Oregon Lundquist College of Business is pleased to announce our inclusion in two major rankings: Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2018 Best Business Schools rankings for MBA programs and the Princeton Review’s Best Green MBA.
Businessweek’s rankings are based on survey responses of more than 26,000 MBA students, alumni, and recruiters in 2018 about their goals and experiences, as well as compensation and job-placement data from each school.
Of 529 Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredited business schools in the United States, the Lundquist College ranked 92nd on this list, placing our MBA program in the top 17 percent of U.S. business schools. In addition, the Lundquist College of Business ranked 122nd in the publication's global rankings. AACSB estimates that there are more than 12,600 business schools worldwide, 726 of which are accredited.
Bloomberg Businessweek changed its rankings methodology this year, eliminating the several categories due to unclear definitions and insufficient data. However, it added a category in which we excel: entrepreneurship.
This year, our Oregon MBA program ranked
- 67th for entrepreneurship in the United States (85th worldwide)
- 43rd among public business schools in the United States
- 19th among business schools from Colorado west
The U.S. rankings were released online on Nov. 8 and appeared in the Nov. 12 issue of Bloomberg Businessweek magazine. The worldwide MBA ranking were published on Bloomberg.com on Dec. 11.
In addition to the Bloomberg Businessweek ranking, the University of Oregon is proud to be named a Best Green MBA by The Princeton Review.
The Princeton Review rankings were released Nov. 8. and once again the University of Oregon MBA program earned a spot in the top ten, placing sixth.
Our Oregon MBA offers a specialization in sustainable business practices that continues to lead the nation and the world when it comes to the triple bottom line: blending the needs of people, the planet, and profits into a successful business.
We are the #3 Green MBA at a public business schools and the #6 Green MBA overall this year out of 282 programs—placing Oregon in the top 2 percent.
These rankings are particularly meaningful in that they are based on MBA student ratings of how well their MBA program is preparing them to address environmental, sustainability, and social responsibility issues in their careers.
“As we train students to transform their careers through an MBA, the Lundquist College of Business is fostering exceptional learning opportunities, along with tailored professional and personal development,” said Monica Bray, associate dean for graduate programs. “We are pleased to see the value of our degree recognized on such a scale.”
