The Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon jumped a remarkable 20 places in the U.S. News & World Report Best Undergraduate Business Schools rankings for 2019. The college ranked 44 out of 503 schools. This places us

“Our faculty and staff provide exceptional learning opportunities for students,” said Sarah E. Nutter, Edward Maletis Dean of the Lundquist College of Business at the University of Oregon. “It’s gratifying to earn this recognition as we innovate and move forward with our uniquely Oregon approach to business education.”
U.S. News & World Report has compiled and published university and college rankings annually since 1987. This is the second highest ranking the Lundquist College of Business has received in recent years. We earned a spot at 42 in 2011. All included schools must be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the most prestigious accreditation standard for business schools internationally. Only 6 percent of the world's business schools are AACSB accredited, and 97 percent of CEOs with business degrees on the Fortune 500 list attended an AACSB-accredited school.
The annual U.S News rankings for business schools are solely based on surveys completed by deans and senior faculty members at peer institutions.
The latest rankings continue a trend increased recognition for the Lundquist College of Business.

And in February, Brigham Young University rated the University of Oregon the #1 school for tax accounting research. In addition, the college’s Oregon MBA program has been rated as a top 5 Green MBA program by the Princeton Review for the past three years.
