About the U.S.News & World Report Ranking

In the spring of 2014, U.S.News & World Report surveyed deans and senior faculty at all undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Participants were asked to rate the quality of programs with which they’re familiar on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished); 38 percent of those surveyed responded. The undergraduate business rankings are based solely on this peer survey. Deans and faculty, two per school, also were asked to nominate the 10 best programs in a number of specialty areas.
