Emory University’s Goizueta Business School ranked seventh in the annual ranking of undergraduate business programs compiled by Bloomberg Businessweek. The BBA program has been listed among the top ten in all eight years of the ranking.

Out of the 145 schools that participated in the rankings, the program received high marks in student satisfaction (8th overall) and recruiter satisfaction (16th overall).

“We are extremely gratified to continue to be listed along with such elite company.   The rankings, while not defining, are an important measure of recognition that influences student interest and recruiter perceptions,” said Andrea Hershatter, Senior Associate Dean and Director of the BBA Program. “We’re delighted by our continuous ranking amongst the top 10 undergraduate business programs and attribute our ongoing success to the wonderful university within which we operate the superior quality of our faculty and programming, and especially, the intellectual ability and leadership capacities of our students. We remain committed to developing innovative educational offerings, grounded by scholarly research and evolving practices.”

Released on March 20, 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.
