Pitt Business Climbs to Top 20 in U.S. Publics
The University of Pittsburgh College of Business Administration continued its ascent in the rankings, moving up to No. 20 among U.S. public institutions and No. 40 in the United States in the 2016 ranking of best undergraduate business programs by Poets&Quants.
Poets&Quants is an online publication for graduate and undergraduate business education news.
The ranking is based on three categories: admissions standards, academic experience, and employment outcomes.
“This ranking is a confirmation that Pitt Business is one of the best business schools in the United States. Our mission of taking students from the classroom, to the city, to the world offers students an exceptional experience both academically and professionally,” says Audrey J. Murrell, associate dean of Pitt Business and director of the David Berg Center for Ethics and Leadership.
In the classroom, students can customize their education through seven business majors, five business certificates, and the opportunity to earn double-degrees with other Pitt schools and participate in the Pitt Business Honors Program.
In the city, students are able to develop professionally and network through the Professional Academies Program, Industry Professional Networks Program, and Executives in Residence Program. They also can interact with hundreds of alumni through the Pitt Business Mentoring Program.
In the world, students may study abroad in more than 75 countries, including through the Pitt Business Global Business Institute, International Internship Program, and Plus3. These programs integrate career experiences into the experience of studying abroad.
In addition to the Poets&Quants ranking, Pitt Business is ranked among the best programs in the nation by other leading publications.
Pitt Business is ranked No. 25 among U.S. publics and No. 38 in the United States by U.S. News & World Report, and No. 21 among U.S. publics and No. 49 in the United States overall by Bloomberg Businessweek.
