Top Undergrad B-Schools by Specialty 2012
Choosing an undergraduate business program is a complicated endeavor, at least in part because all schools have different strengths and weaknesses. A school with a terrific accounting program may not have the best finance faculty, and a program renowned for its strategy courses may not be as strong in accounting.
To help students and parents choose the right college for their needs, each year, as part of our ranking of the nation's top undergraduate business programs, Bloomberg Businessweek surveys more than 85,000 students at more than 100 top B-schools and asks them to rate their program's performance in 14 academic disciplines ranging from entrepreneurship and ethics to marketing and sustainability. In the interactive table below, you can see how each of our top programs fared in each of the specialties. New this year is the Information Systems category, taking the place of Calculus. (Ed. note: MIT (Sloan) is not included in the specialty ranking due to insufficient student responses.)
