Undergraduate studentsThe undergraduate business program at the UM School of Business is ranked No. 26 in the nation for the academic quality of its program in BusinessWeek magazine’s annual rankings of the nation’s best undergraduate business programs. Overall, the School is ranked No. 50 in the rankings which were released Feb. 26. The School was also ranked among the top 25 in five out of 12 specialty areas including Quantitative Methods (No. 5), Business Law (No. 8), Marketing (No. 20), Calculus (No. 24), and Operations Management (No. 27). The specialty rankings were released April 9. A total of 137 schools were eligible for the ranking with 101 making the list.

The BusinessWeek rankings are based on academic quality, as well as surveys of senior students and corporate recruiters, among other measures. The academic quality is a gauge of five measures, which include average SAT scores for incoming freshman, the ratio of full-time faculty to students, average class size, the percentage of business majors with internships and the hours students spend every week on school work.

In the student survey, the School was rated especially high for its teaching quality, which received an A, and for its facilities and services, which received an A+. The School’s undergraduate program is the only business program in the state of Florida to be ranked among the top-50 programs by BusinessWeek.

Last fall, the Financial Times ranked the School’s Executive MBA program No. 33 among all programs in the Americas and the top-ranked Executive MBA program in Florida.
