U.S. News & World Report magazine has listed Colorado State University’s College of Business among the top 100 programs in the nation.
The College of Business is one of only two Colorado business colleges listed in the top 100. Other universities closely ranked with Colorado State include Washington State University, Loyola University, Marquette University and Rutgers.
Business Administration accounts for the largest number of majors at Colorado State University and has grown 46 percent in the past five years.
"We’re pleased to be in the top 100, and believe our designation among the top 25 percent of all business schools nationally accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business – as well as leading programs such as the internationally distinguished online MBA program – will only move us higher in the national rankings in the years to come," said Dan Costello, dean of the College of Business.
Earlier this year, Kiplinger magazine named Colorado State’s online MBA program as one of the best in the country.
The magazine noted that Colorado State’s distance MBA program has a reputation for high standards and is accredited by the AACSB, two essential criteria for participants to set themselves apart when interviewing with personnel managers and executive recruiters.
The College of Business also was chosen this year by IBM to be its technology hub for the nation. IBM provided the Computer Information Systems department in the college with the use of a sophisticated mainframe, valued at $21.6 million by IBM over the course of two years. As IBM’s technology hub, Colorado State will provide support to other universities across the country that wish to use the powerful mainframe for enterprise systems experience and research.
