Students and recruiters gave Mays Business School high marks in Bloomberg Businessweek’s recent ranking of undergraduate business programs. Mays tied for 12th among public universities (up from 15th) and tied for 33rd among all U.S. universities (up from 39th). Only 22 public universities were included in the magazine’s Top 50.
Businessweek judges business schools based on recruiter and student surveys, academic quality, teaching quality, and the starting salaries and career outcomes of graduates.
Recruiters ranked Mays 5th among public schools and 7th overall. Last year, Mays was ranked 14th and 34th, respectively.
In addition, Mays scored well in the factors that contribute to the experience of the undergraduates. Senior students gave Mays an A in teaching quality, an A in facilities and services, and an A+ in job placement. Only 12 public universities in the nation received A’s in each of these categories.
“While improving the quality of the education and services we provide, we have managed to hold the line on cost, and remain one of the “best value’ schools in the state and nation,” said Martha L. Loudder, associate dean for undergraduate programs at May. “We are especially proud that our graduating seniors gave Mays such high marks. Student satisfaction, starting salaries and job placement rates are among the highest of our peers.”
