Georgia Tech College of Management is ranked one of the nation’s Top 50 undergraduate programs in business, according to the latest rankings of Bloomberg BusinessWeek
Georgia Tech rose to 50th, a one-point jump over 2009, and is 19th among public universities. Of the 400 accredited business schools in the nation, 139 were eligible for ranking in 2010. The rankings are based on surveys of recruiters and student satisfaction as well as job placement statistics and measures of academic quality.
In the Recruiter category, Georgia Tech rose from 45th to 21st. “We consistently hear from recruiters that they are impressed with how exceptionally well our graduates perform within their organizations, so it is nice to see this recognized in the ranking,” says Nancy Gimbel, director of the College of Management’s Undergraduate Program.
Students surveyed awarded the College an "A+" grade in Job Placement and a "A" for Teaching Quality.
"Although I am happy to see continuous improvement in the BusinessWeek
rankings, I know that no ranking is truly representative of the many exceptional facets of our undergraduate program," Gimbel says. "In recent years, we have greatly enhanced advising services and dramatically expanded career services and freshman recruiting. We're consistently seeking ways to improve our program, streamline operations, and provide an exceptional undergraduate experience for our students."
College of Management Dean Steve Salbu adds: "I am extremely proud of the excellent quality of the business school's undergraduate program. We're gratified that the rankings are increasingly reflecting all we have to offer students"
