Bloomberg Businessweek Names Duquesne Undergraduate Business School Among Top 100

For the third consecutive year, Duquesne University's A.J. Palumbo School of Business Administration has been named one of the nation's top 100 undergraduate business schools by Bloomberg Businessweek.

Only eight schools in Pennsylvania made this top 100 listing compiled by the well-regarded business publication. The rankings include both a survey of senior business majors and employers, and schools must achieve a certain response rate on both surveys to be considered. Students are asked about teaching, academic services and career support; employers are asked which schools produce the highest quality of graduates.

A growing number of schools-145-participated in these rankings.

"Especially given the growing and intensified competition, we're proud to be consistently considered among the top business schools in the state and in the country," said Associate Business Dean Dr. William Spangler. "It's rewarding that our students and our students' employers recognize the value of a Duquesne business education."

Businessweek measures academic quality through SAT scores, student-faculty ratios, class size in core business courses, the percentage of students with internship and the amount of time devoted to class work. The ranking also considers how many alumni enroll in top-ranked MBA programs and their median starting salaries.

The complete list of rankings is available at www.businessweek.com and clicking on the "Business Schools" tab.
