Goizueta Undergraduate BBA Program Ranked Third by Bloomberg BusinessWeek
Emory University's Goizueta Business School ranked No. 3 in the annual ranking of undergraduate business programs compiled by Bloomberg BusinessWeek released today. This is the highest ranking the program has received from the publication. In 2010, the undergraduate BBA program ranked seventh in the nation.
The program received high marks in student (fourth overall) and recruiter satisfaction (second overall).
“We are thrilled to note our very strong showing among the students and even more gratified to see the positive response from the recruiters who work with them,” said Andrea Hershatter, Associate Dean and Director of the Undergraduate Business Program. “Two, top-five rankings in these categories is really remarkable. It is such an honor to have been listed among the top-10 programs each year that BusinessWeek has compiled this ranking. This public recognition of the Goizueta BBA Program is a tribute to the quality of our faculty and programs and, especially, an acknowledgement of the caliber of our fabulous undergraduate students as they embark upon their careers.”
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 class work.
