The Best Undergraduate Business Schools by Specialty 2013
Choosing the right undergrad business school isn’t easy, especially if you haven’t decided on what you want to do with your degree. But if you have chosen an intended career path, the table below will help you to identify schools in your interest area that you might not have considered. For instance, if international business is your focus, one of the schools you should be targeting is the University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business. If you’re interested in green business, set your sights on American University or William & Mary.
Included in the table below, in two tabs, is how 123 undergraduate business schools rank in each of 14 specialty areas. Also included are internship figures, arguably the most important column in the table. If you’re curious about how likely it’s going to be for you to get some business-related work experience on your résumé before you graduate, this is a good place to look.
Methodology: As part of the 2013 Best Undergraduate B-Schools ranking, Bloomberg Businessweek asked undergraduate business students from the Class of 2013 to tell us, via an online survey, about the full range of their business school experience, from getting in to getting a job. The specialty ranking is based on responses to a group of questions asking them to rank their program’s offerings in 14 areas. Points are awarded for each response—one point for an “A” grade through five points for a grade of “F”—and then averaged for each school. MIT’s Sloan School of Management is not included in the table due to a low number of student responses.
