Mays Business School held its position among the nation’s top 30 undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, U.S. News & World Report announced in advance of publication of its “Best Colleges” guidebook for 2014.

Mays is tied at 16th place for undergraduate business programs with five other public universities, and with those public universities and Brigham Young at 27th overall. The public universities with which the Texas A&M program is tied are Arizona State, Georgia Tech, University of Florida, University of Georgia, and Michigan State.

Last year, Mays moved up significantly both overall and among public universities in the publication’s undergraduate program rankings, moving up to 14th from 22nd among public schools and to 24th from 36th overall. This 12-place jump represented the largest move of any school included in both years of rankings.

“We are pleased but certainly not surprised we were among the top undergraduate programs in the U.S. News rankings, and remain as one of the top institutions in the United States,” Martha L. Loudder, associate dean of undergraduate studies and professor at Mays, said of this year’s results.

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