U.S. News: Pitt Business No. 24 Among U.S. Publics
Pitt Business is ranked No. 24th among U.S. public institutions and No. 39th among all U.S. institutions in the newly released 2016 rankings of undergraduate business schools by U.S. News & World Report.
Pitt Business has maintained a strong hold on this position, for it has been ranked within the top 25 of U.S. public programs for two consecutive years.
The U.S. News ranking results are based solely on surveys of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions. Only undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International are eligible.
“The national reputation and high regard of Pitt Business among its peers is impressive,” said Audrey J. Murrell, associate dean of the school. “It speaks to the quality of our academics, career services, and international opportunities.”
The Pitt Business Bachelor of Science in Business Administration program is designed to take students on an educational journey from the classroom, to the city, to the world. The goal is to prepare students for leadership roles in global business.
Nearly half of Pitt Business students study abroad. A popular new program, the Global Business Institute, links study abroad to a business curriculum. Students are also able to complete guaranteed internships and work toward the Certificate Program in International Business.
“We have Global Business Institute locations in London, Florence, and Sydney, with each location tailored to specific functional areas. We make sure the courses we offer will keep you on track for graduating on time, while enhancing your ability to expand your knowledge globally.”
The 2015-16 Academic Year is a milestone for the Pitt Business College of Business Administration; it marks the 20th anniversary of its first admitted class.
“Our recognition in the 2016 U.S. News ranking is particularly exciting as the news comes during our 20th anniversary kick off week. This is a great time to reflect on our legacy and to continue driving the program forward,” Murrell said.
