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

 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 second-best in the U.S. in ethics; No. 15 in accounting; No. 23 in international business; No. 43 in sustainability; and No. 47 in financial management.  Bloomberg Businessweek surveyed more than 85,000 students at more than 100 top B-schools and asked them to rate their program’s performance in 14 academic disciplines ranging from ethics to sustainability. Scores were then calculated for each of the ranked schools in each specialty. 

 “What is most significant about this ranking is that it reflects student satisfaction regarding their Daniels experience,” said Daniels Dean Christine Riordan. “Our students’ high regard for the Daniels ethics, accounting, international business, sustainability and financial management programs demonstrate their critical importance to future business leaders. These rankings also reflect our strategic work and focus on ethics, sustainability, and globalization”

 This adds to the suite of rankings recognition received by Daniels.  In March 2011, BusinessWeek placed the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business at No. 64 in their undergraduate programs ranking, advancing 10 points from its 2010 ranking of No. 74. In October 2010, the Daniels College of Business Executive MBA program was ranked No. 95 in the world by the Financial Times – the sole Colorado school to be ranked. 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 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, Daniels was named No. 20 in the world for teaching of business ethics by the Aspen Institute. More information about the rankings can be found at
