William & Mary's Mason School of Business was recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek for having an outstanding undergraduate program, according to a report released April 4.
The program is now ranked 22nd best in the nation — up from 27th a year ago. Among public universities the program is ranked at number seven, up three spots from 10 last year.
“We are delighted with this outcome and it is a strong testament to the innovative leadership team, our remarkable faculty and our talented, well prepared students,” said Lawrence B. Pulley, dean of the Mason School of Business. “We think of our program and students and faculty as among the best and we are pleased to see others agree.”
Bloomberg Businessweek’s undergraduate business school rankings are based on five components: student assessment, academic quality metrics, employer opinion, median starting salary, and a "feeder school" score, which reflects how many students undergrad programs send to top MBA programs.
William & Mary’s undergraduate program was also rated the best in the nation for marketing by Bloomberg Businessweek last June.
