U.S. News & World Report's 2017 America's Best Colleges guide has ranked the Stillman School of Business among the "Best Undergraduate Business Programs."
The Business School is ranked 114, rising nearly 20 places when compared to last year's ranking of 131.
Only business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business are considered for inclusion in the business program ranking - the results of which are based solely on peer assessment surveys.
"My colleagues and I are so proud of this external affirmation of the quality of Stillman's programs, which are distinguished by a focus on ethics-centered education and the goal of 'transforming concepts into practice,'" said Joyce Strawser, dean of the Stillman School of Business. "We are especially pleased because this recognition is coming from our peers - deans and associate deans of other AACSB-accredited business schools."
U.S. News' recognition of the Business School's academic excellence is just one of many in the past year. The School is ranked #65 in Bloomberg Businessweek's 2016 listing of the "Best Undergraduate Business Schools," and its Gerald P. Buccino '63 Center for Leadership Development earned, for a second consecutive year, a #1 ranking in the Leadership 500 Excellence Awards.
Widespread recognition of Stillman being a leading school of business is evidenced by a 95% employment rate among its graduating seniors and one of the largest freshman classes in more than 30 years.
Moreover, accolades are not limited to the undergraduate programs. Listed as one of U.S. News & World Report's "Best Grad Schools for Part-time MBAs" as well as a Princeton Review "Best Business School," the Stillman School is recognized for having outstanding academic offerings within its graduate business programs as well.
