Chapel Hill, N.C. (PRWEB) April 20, 2016
The Undergraduate Business Program at the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School was ranked No. 7 in the new ranking released by Bloomberg Businessweek on April 19.
“This ranking honors a tradition of excellence in the Undergraduate Business Program that dates back to 1921,” said Dean Douglas Shackelford, a 1980 graduate of the program. “Our talented, top-caliber students thrive as they learn from our stellar faculty and receive support from our dedicated staff. Companies value their business knowledge and skills, built on a liberal-arts foundation, and the strong work ethic and interpersonal skills they bring to their work – and tell us they wish they could hire even more of them.”
The program was ranked No. 10 the last time Bloomberg Businessweek ranked undergraduate programs in 2014. The 2016 methodology changed significantly to “focus on how well the programs prepare their graduates for job success.”
