UT among Bloomberg’s best undergrad business schools in nation

Bloomberg BusinessWeek has ranked The University of Toledo in the top 100 best undergraduate business schools of 2016.

The UT College of Business and Innovation ranked No. 96.  That is up 31 spots from its place in Bloomberg’s previous ranking of undergraduate business programs in 2014.

Bloomberg, a global business and financial information and news leader which has been ranking undergraduate business programs for ten years, updated its process this year by placing greater emphasis on jobs and removing data that does not directly relate to career preparation.

“Our tremendous success in securing jobs for our students — as high as 93 percent as of May 2015 graduates — through the work of our outstanding Business Career Programs Office obviously played a key part in producing great survey results for the Bloomberg study,” Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean of the college, said.  “All of us in the College of Business and Innovation are very excited at this national recognition by Bloomberg of the quality and relevance of our programs. This further validates the quality of our faculty, the significance of our curriculum and the excellence of our students.”

Bloomberg surveyed more than 27,000 students from the 2016 graduating class at the 114 ranked schools and recruiters at nearly 600 companies.  It based its rankings on four main metrics:

  • Employer Survey (40 percent of total score): Feedback from recruiters who hire recent business graduates on how well schools prepared students for jobs at their companies.
  • Student Survey (35 percent): Students’ own ratings of the campus, career services department, and faculty and administrators.
  • Starting Salary (15 percent): The base compensation of students who had jobs lined up, adjusted for salary variation across industries and regions.
  • Internship (10 percent): The percentage of a school’s graduates who had at least one internship at any time during college.

Bloomberg provides these rankings to help guide prospective college students and their families through the process of choosing the right degree program for the career they want.
