BUFFALO, N.Y. — The University at Buffalo School of Management is again ranked as one of the country’s best undergraduate business programs in the 2017 edition of “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News and World Report.
The UB School of Management is tied for No. 77, up three spots from last year, and ranked higher than any other business school in the State University of New York system.
Among public business schools, the School of Management is ranked No. 48.
“Innovations like our Undergraduate Learning and Community Center and our Undergraduate Honors program are going a long way to enhance the quality of our student experience and our global reputation,” said Paul Tesluk, dean of the School of Management. “It’s always nice to see these efforts reflected in the rankings.”
The ranking was culled from a list of more than 775 schools accredited by AACSB International - The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, positioning the school in the top 10 percent of accredited undergraduate business programs.
Based on a survey to deans and senior faculty at accredited schools, the ranking asks participants to rate the quality of all programs they are familiar with on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished).
