In recently released rankings from BusinessWeek, Mays Business School has climbed to 10th in the nation among other public undergraduate business schools and 31st in the nation overall. This is a significant improvement from the 2007 rankings, in which Mays was listed at 21st among public schools and 50th overall in the U.S.

“It is a great honor to be listed among the most prestigious public business schools in the nation,” said Martha Loudder, associate dean and professor. “We are extremely pleased to see that the many improvements in our undergraduate program over the last two years are being recognized by our students and recruiters.”

These rankings were determined by an equation factoring five elements: a student satisfaction survey administered to graduating seniors at ranked institutions; a survey of recruiters from top corporations seeking recent b-school graduates; starting salaries; placement in one of the top 35 MBA programs in the nation; and academic quality as evidenced by class-size and average SAT scores, among other things.

In 2008, 96 schools made BusinessWeek‘s rankings list. For more information, or to see the complete rankings, go to
