Again this year, Texas A&M University and Mays Business School have received great reviews in U.S. News and World Report‘s “Best Colleges” guidebook.

In the “Best Business Schools” category of the 2011 guidebook, Mays moved up three rankings to tied for 16th place among public schools. Among all schools public and private, Mays was ranked tied for 28th.

Business school rankings are based on a survey of deans and senior faculty at undergraduate business programs accredited by the AACSB International—The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

“We are obviously pleased with the improvement in our ranking,” said Mays Dean Jerry Strawser. “Rankings such as this affirm the quality and dedication of our students and faculty and reflect the increased opportunities for our students following their graduation.”

All of these rankings were released in advance of the U.S. News and World Report‘s September issue, scheduled to be on newsstands August 31. The guidebook will be available August 24.
