Amherst, Massachusetts (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
The Isenberg School of Management at the University of Massachusetts Amherst now ranks 36th in the nation in BusinessWeek’s just-released annual Best Undergraduate Business Schools survey. Isenberg’s current ranking rose nine places from 45th in 2013 and six places from 20th to 14th among public business schools. That progress reflects a sustained upward trend by Isenberg in BusinessWeek’s undergraduate survey, in which the school recorded the most improved rankings in the nation from 2010-2013.
Isenberg’s steady improvement and growing national reputation is also evident in the School’s ranking of 11th in the nation (6th among publics) in the area of Recruiter Satisfaction. That vote of confidence from employers is likely reflected in the school’s ranking of 28th in the nation in median starting salaries for its graduating seniors.
“Our continued progress in the undergraduate rankings underscores our continuous investment in preparing our students with business-ready skills,” emphasizes Isenberg’s dean, Mark A. Fuller. “That includes state-of-the art academics and constant exposure to business through experiential learning and high-quality interactions with our alumni.”
BusinessWeek based its 2014 rankings of 132 undergraduate business school programs on formal evaluations by graduating seniors, assessments by employers/recruiters, academic quality, median starting salaries, and success in “feeding” graduates to MBA programs.
