Mays Business School at Texas A&M University moved up significantly both overall and among public universities in the 2013 U.S. News & World Report undergraduate program rankings, moving up to 14th from 22nd among public schools and to 24th from 36th overall. This 12-place jump represents the largest move of any school included in both years of rankings.

In the business specialty rankings, the management program at Mays ranked 9th among public schools and tied for 15th overall.

“We are obviously pleased with our movement forward in the recent U.S. News rankings,” said Mays Dean Jerry Strawser. “To be recognized among the top business schools in the country is an honor, and reflects the high quality of our students and faculty and the success of our students upon graduation.”

The undergraduate business program rankings are based on a survey of deans and senior faculty at each business school accredited by the AACSB.
