BusinessWeek ranks Daniels among top 75 undergraduate schools

The Daniels College of Business is ranked No. 67 nationally according to BusinessWeek’s 2008 ranking of undergraduate programs released Feb. 28.

Daniels also is the top undergraduate business school in the state, according to BusinessWeek, which ranked Colorado State University No. 73 and Leeds School of Business at CU-Boulder No. 83.

“There are nearly 2,500 undergraduates majoring in business at DU,” says Daniels Dean Bruce Hutton. “And those numbers are growing. These young professionals realize that a liberal arts education combined with business acumen is a potent combination.”

BusinessWeek’s report, “The Best Undergraduate Business Programs,” considered five sources for the undergraduate ranking:
1) a student survey
2) a recruiter survey
3) median starting salaries for graduates
4) the number of graduates admitted to 35 top MBA programs
5) an academic quality measure that consists of SAT/ACT test scores for business majors, full-time faculty-student ratios in the business program, average class size in core business classes, the percentage of business majors with internships and the number of hours students spend preparing for class each week.

Daniels has been also honored as one of the top business schools in the world by the Wall Street Journal, it received the “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” ranking from the Aspen Institute and garnered BusinessWeek’s “Best Part-Time MBA Programs.”
