Goizueta's undergraduate BBA program received high marks in student and recruiter satisfaction this year.

Emory University's Goizueta Business School ranked fifth in the annual ranking of undergraduate business programs compiled by Bloomberg Businessweek. This marks the fifth time the program has been listed among the top five in the seven years of the ranking.

The program received high marks in student (fourth overall) and recruiter satisfaction (sixth overall).

"This ongoing recognition of the BBA Program is a tribute to the quality of the Goizueta Business School and its continuous place amongst the top tier in management education," said Andrea Hershatter, Senior Associate Dean and Director of the Undergraduate Business Program. "We are delighted by the top 5 ranking and very proud of the BBA program, Emory University, our faculty, and especially, our students. We enhance our offerings each year in order to provide them with the very best intellectual, personal and professional development.  We remain committed to building and delivering a program commensurate with their abilities and talents."

The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking is a compilation of several components, including student and recruiter surveys, median starting salaries for graduates and the number of alumni these undergraduate programs send to top MBA programs. Also included are academic quality rankings combining average SAT scores, student-faculty ratios, class size, percentage of students with internships and number of hours students spend on class work.
