BusinessWeek ranking of undergraduate business programs places William and Mary second among all U.S. business schools for marketing

MBS Logo WILLIAMSBURG, VA — The College of William and Mary Undergraduate School of Business is one of the best schools in the country for marketing, according to BusinessWeek's 2008 Undergraduate Business Program Rankings.

BusinessWeek asked business majors at schools to rank their programs on a scale of one to five, in 11 different academic categories. Schools are ranked in a range of academic fields, including microeconomics, accounting, financial management, business law, corporate strategy, and ethics.

The specialty ranking follows the BusinessWeek overall ranking released in March which placed The College of William and Mary in the top ten of public U.S. business schools and 29th among all U.S. business schools.

“This confirms what we already knew about our faculty’s talent, commitment, and personalized approach to business education,” remarked Dean Lawrence B. Pulley. “It is particularly pleasing because this remarkable honor for our marketing faculty is bestowed by our students.”
