The Stillman School of Business has earned a spot in the second annual Poets & Quants "Best Undergraduate Business Programs" ranking. This ranking represents the top 16% of all accredited business schools in the U.S. Among this elite set of business schools, Stillman is ranked #67.
The Poets & Quants ranking was launched in 2016 after a year of collaboration with business school deans and administrators from leading institutions. More unique to the ranking is that it's scores are based on three components, which are equally weighted: 1) admissions data, 2) alumni satisfaction and 3) employment outcomes for graduates.
Of note, the Stillman School did particularly well in its alumni satisfaction score, (ranking #42 overall). Among the alumni surveyed:
- Stillman earned an "A+" on the question, "Would you recommend the business program to a close friend?" Ranked #32 on this question, just ahead of Wharton (which earned the #1 overall b-school ranking).
- Stillman earned an "A+" on the question, "How would you appraise the business program's efforts to bring you into contact with practicing professionals, including your school's alumni network, in the business community?" This score places the Stillman School in 7th place, tied with Georgetown.
- Stillman earned an "A" and was ranked #25 on the question, "Were business school faculty available for informal discussions and mentoring outside of class?"
"We are very proud of these results, which affirm the quality of our undergraduate program, the strength of the Stillman community and the community’s commitment to the School's mission," said Joyce Strawser, dean of the Stillman School of Business. "Thank you to everyone in the Stillman community for the work that is done to drive these outcomes. I especially want to thank our colleagues in The Career Center who work so diligently and effectively with our faculty, staff and students."
