Bloomberg BusinessWeek today ranked Colorado State University’s College of Business as one of the top undergraduate business programs in the country.
Colorado State ranked No. 73 in this year’s BusinessWeek rankings, up from No. 89 last year.
"The College of Business undergraduate program is successful because of the high caliber of its faculty and students," said Dean Ajay Menon. "Our students learn from a team of dedicated faculty and staff who are committed to creating and delivering the best possible undergraduate experience."
To determine the 2014 rankings, BusinessWeek surveyed more than 91,000 graduating seniors at 132 eligible programs on such topics as the quality of teaching, access to faculty, school facilities, career services, and overall student satisfaction.
Researchers also asked 922 employers to list their top 20 schools based on the quality of graduates they have hired in the past five years; the more undergraduate business majors an employer hired, the more its ranking points counted for schools.
CSU received the highest rank among employers and for student satisfaction of any business school in Colorado.
The other Colorado schools ranked in the BusinessWeek report were the University of Denver at No. 67 and the University of Colorado at No. 97. A complete list of schools and rankings is at www.businessweek.com.
