U.S. News & World Report announced its undergraduate business school rankings for the upcoming 2021 year and the Lundquist College of Business is celebrating a six-position jump over last year’s placement.
The college is now in the top 5 among public business schools on the West Coast, #28 among public business schools, and #44 overall.
“Progression in rankings like these affirm we are taking the right steps to further develop as a college and achieve our vision of being the top destination on the West Coast for students seeking to study business,” said Sarah E. Nutter, Edward Maletis Dean of the Lundquist College.
U.S. News undergraduate business program rankings are based on surveys of deans and senior faculty members of peer institutions conducted in spring and early summer 2020. U.S. News queried the leadership at each of the 511 undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International.
The Lundquist College is among the elite 1.5 percent of business schools accredited in both accounting and business by AACSB.
This is an exciting time of growth and recognition for the Lundquist College. Our specialty programs are gaining momentum, including a top 20 designation for our Master of Science in Finance for a U.S. public university by Quacquarelli Symonds. And, our alumni are launching startups with such success. We were recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek in 2019 and 2020 as a top 10 school for entrepreneurship.
