BusineesWeek Ranks Marquette Among Top
50 Business Schools
April 28, 2006
MILWAUKEE- BusinessWeek magazine ranked Marquette
University 's College of
Business Administration 46 th in its list of the top
undergraduate business schools in the nation. The ranking
is based on student engagement, outcomes following graduation,
and academic quality.
"This certainly is a well-earned recognition of the
hard work everyone in the college applies to building the
quality of our programs and service to our students,” says
Dr. David L. Shrock, dean of the college.
To rank the best undergraduate business programs in the United
States, BusinessWeek and Cambria Consulting of Boston identified
84 colleges that met stringent criteria and surveyed almost
100,000 business majors who were asked to rate their programs
from curriculum and faculty to facilities and grading policies.
To find out how students fared after graduation, the team
surveyed 2,000 recruiters, studied starting salaries, and
conducted a third survey of the business programs themselves.
BusinessWeek also analyzed which schools send the most students
to top MBA programs.
One Marquette student told BusinessWeek, “The business
program did an exceptional job of teaching theory, application,
and ethics from a managerial perspective. I appreciate the
broader focus, where each major is important, but a connection
to other disciplines was also made to see the ‘whole picture."
BusinessWeek's Top 50 Undergraduate Business Schools is available
in the May 8 issue that will be on newsstands Monday. The
complete list of the top undergraduate business schools, as
well as school profiles, frequently asked questions, and other
information, is also online.
