Daniels College of Business once again ranked among top U.S. schools by BusinessWeek

Ranking gives top marks to Daniels programs in ethics, accounting, marketing, sustainability and financial management

DENVER –In the Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s annual ranking of the Best Undergraduate Business Programs by Specialty, the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business placed among the nation’s top business programs. 

Daniels was ranked the third-best in the U.S. in ethics; No. 27 in accounting; No. 31 in marketing; No. 40 in sustainability; and No. 50 in financial management.  As part of Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s annual ranking of the top undergraduate business programs, senior business students from participating schools assigned letter grades—from A to F—to their business programs in specialty areas that included ethics, sustainability, calculus, microeconomics, macroeconomics, accounting, financial management, and marketing management among others.

Scores were then calculated for each of the ranked schools in each specialty. 

“We are very proud of our recent rankings, especially around ethics. The teaching of ethics is top of mind for our faculty at Daniels, more than ever given the recent economic turmoil. However, it’s important to note that we were one of the first business colleges to include ethics in a core curriculum grounded in rigorous technical business knowledge,” said Daniels Dean Christine Riordan. “Our accounting, marketing and finance programs are also important components of the Daniels educational experience, giving our graduates  the critical thinking skills needed to make a difference in the future of business.”

This ranking adds to the suite of rankings recognition received by Daniels.  In April 2010, U.S. News’ part time M.B.A. ranking placed the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business program in the top 70 in the U.S.  In March 2010, BusinessWeek ranked the undergraduate program of Daniels No. 74 and the top undergraduate business school in Colorado.  In November 2009, BusinessWeek ranked the Daniels’ Professional MBA program for working professionals 53rd in the country, the only Colorado business school in the rankings. In October 2009, the Daniels College of Business Executive MBA program was ranked No. 85 in the world by the Financial Times – the sole Colorado school to be ranked – in addition to being named No. 20 in the world for teaching of business ethics by the Aspen Institute. More information about the rankings can be found at
