U.S. News ranked IU Southeast School of Business among top-tier schools

IU Southeast School of Business undergraduate programs ranked among top-tier schools for 2nd year in a row.

The IU Southeast School of Business has again been ranked as a top-tier business school. IU Southeast moved up 30 spots in the 2012 listing of “Best Business Schools” by US News and World Report. This ranking places IU Southeast’s undergraduate business programs among the top 15% in the country.

For the undergraduate business school rankings, U.S. News surveyed deans and senior faculty at each undergraduate business program accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). AACSB is the top business school accrediting body in the world and IU Southeast has held this accreditation since the inception of its business programs.

This is one of the latest recognitions for the School of Business which currently has the highest ranked MBA program in the Greater Louisville region according to Bloomberg’s BusinessWeek. IU Southeast’s MBA program is ranked 9th in the nation by that organization and 2nd in the nation for post-MBA outcomes.

“The formats of the rankings by U.S. News and BusinessWeek are very different,” according to Business School dean, Dr. Jay White. “The BusinessWeek ranking is a more in-depth analysis of our programs, including a detailed survey of our program graduates. What the U.S. News ranking, and the improvement, shows is that we are also moving up in stature as our peers see us. That’s important for many reasons, including the recruitment of top faculty.”
