For the first time in its history, Mays Business School’s undergraduate programs placed among the top 30 U.S. universities in Bloomberg Businessweek’s newest ranking of undergraduate business programs. Mays placed 29th overall (up from 33rd) and 9th among U.S. public schools (up from 12th). Of particular note is Mays’ performance in the employer survey component; Mays was ranked 5th overall and 3rd among all public institutions in terms of overall employer satisfaction with Mays graduates.
This ranking places Mays in an elite group of 16 institutions that are ranked among the top 30 by Bloomberg Businessweek for the quality of both their undergraduate and full-time MBA programs. Of these, only seven (including Mays) are public institutions. The other public institutions are University of California, Berkeley; Indiana University; University of Michigan; University of North Carolina; University of Texas; and University of Virginia.
“We are very proud to be included in the top tier of public schools, and we are especially gratified to be 5th among both public and private institutions in the employer survey,” said Marty Loudder, associate dean of undergraduate programs. “We are constantly in touch with our recruiting companies, and they provide us with valuable information that we use to improve our academic programs and our students’ preparedness for the workforce.”
“The recognition of both our undergraduate and MBA programs by Bloomberg Businessweek is noteworthy,” said Mays Dean Jerry Strawser. “These rankings illustrate that an institution does not need to make trade-offs between its undergraduate programs and MBA programs, and they reflect the quality and efforts of our students, faculty and staff in all of our programs.”
