BusinessWeek magazine has named The University of Akron College of Business Administration (CBA) as one of the best undergraduate schools in the nation for the fifth consecutive year. The CBA is the only public university business program in Northeast Ohio recognized in BusinessWeek’s undergraduate rankings. This year, the magazine ranked only 124 programs out of more than 1,800 in the U.S.
“Consistent recognition by national ranking and accreditation organizations is one of the many indicators of our program’s strength,” says Susan Hanlon, CBA Assistant Dean, with responsibilities for undergraduate programs. “Another indication is an 87 percent employment rate at six months after graduation, when the national average across all degrees is 47 percent. These successes and others are all affirmations of what our superb faculty, excellent staff, and hard-working students do every day.”
In the magazine's 2013 annual ranking of undergraduate business programs in the United States, the CBA was ranked 108 nationally.
