Eller Moves Up in US News Rankings

Sept. 9, 2014

Eller College of Management moved up a slot to #21 overall and #11 among public business programs in the 2015 America’s Best Colleges issue of U.S. News & World Report. Last year, the college ranked #22 overall and #12 among public schools.

“They say that the best never rest, and that is clearly true of the Eller College,” said dean Len Jessup. “Competition at this level is tough, and upward momentum is a testament to the hard work of Pam Perry and the undergraduate program team.”

In addition to the overall ranking, two of the College’s specialties ranked among the top five programs in the country: McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship maintained its #2 ranking among public school programs. The program ranked #5 overall, behind Indiana University, University of Southern California, and MIT.

The Department of Management Information Systems ranked #3 among public schools (#5 overall), behind MIT and Carnegie Mellon.

Each spring, U.S. News surveys deans and senior faculty at undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The overall and specialty rankings are based solely on this peer survey.
