Goizueta Business School BBA Program Ranked 7th by BusinessWeek
The Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranking is a compilation of several components, including student and recruiter surveys, median starting salaries for graduates, and the number of alumni these undergraduate programs send to top MBA programs. Also included are academic quality rankings combining average SAT scores, student-faculty ratios, class size, percentage of students with internships and number of hours students spend on classwork.
"We are delighted to continue to be listed among the nation's most elite programs," says Andrea Hershatter, associate dean and director of the undergraduate business program. "This recognition is a byproduct of the collective efforts of our excellent faculty, staff and students in making this an intellectually, professionally and socially engaging community."
A school's ranking is one of many factors that students review when selecting a school. Prospective students also look at course offerings, quality of the faculty, staff and students, and geographical location.
In addition to the undergraduate program, Emory's Goizueta Business School offers a two-year MBA program, a one-year MBA program, an evening MBA program, two formats of the W. Cliff Oxford Executive MBA (weekend and modular), and a doctoral degree, together with a set of innovative non-degree Emory executive education programs.
