These programs mean business

BusinessWeek magazine has named Santa Clara University’s undergraduate business program among the top in the nation. This is the first time the business program, which came in at No. 27, has made the rankings. Also this spring, U.S. News & World Report ranked SCU’s part-time MBA program No. 14 in the nation.

The BusinessWeek assessment, gathered from surveys conducted with recruiting firms and students, evaluated nearly 100 business programs nationally. Among the measurements taken were entering student test scores, teaching quality, and alumni job placement.

“I am delighted that our undergraduate business program has been recognized for its academic rigor, the excellent instruction by our teacher-scholars, and the success of our alumni,” said Barry Z. Posner, dean of the Leavey School of Business at SCU.

The program earned an A+ in job placement, was ranked No. 20 by recruiting firms in the quality of graduates, and scored No. 18 in academic quality among all 93 ranked programs.

The Santa Clara University undergraduate business program was third among California schools listed. Among Jesuit business schools, Santa Clara University shared the limelight with Georgetown and Boston College.

The graduate student body was ranked among the top 50 most diverse (21.6 percent minorities) by U.S. News. Graduates of the part-time MBA progam have some of the highest salaries in the nation—averaging $100,466 in base salary, making the program sixth in the nation among highest paid new graduates. KCS
