Chaifetz School Ranked Top-75 by Poets&Quants for Undergrads
The Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University has again been recognized by Poets&Quants for Undergrads as one of the top undergraduate business schools in the country. SLU ranked No. 71 overall in the nation, No. 71 for career outcomes and No. 73 for alumni experience in the 2022 rankings released on January 27.
The Chaifetz School was one of only two schools in Missouri to achieve this national ranking.
“We are honored to continue to see the Chaifetz School be recognized as a leader in undergraduate business education by Poets&Quants,” said Barnali Gupta, Ph.D., Edward Jones Dean of the Chaifetz School of Business. “These rankings are a testament to our talented faculty and the success of our graduates, who continue to lead the way as agents of positive change in the world of business.”
This is the second time in the 2021-22 academic year that the Chaifetz School has been nationally recognized for its undergraduate programs. Last fall, U.S. News & World Report listed the Chaifetz School as a top undergraduate business school, with particularly high rankings for international business (No. 16), entrepreneurship (No. 17) and finance (No. 38).
According to Poets&Quants, its rankings are based on a number of factors, including admission standards, academic experiences and career outcomes. In a change from previous years, the 2022 rankings included the average high school GPA of each school’s most recently enrolled class and the average percentage of students that reported being National Merit finalists or semi-finalists.
Earlier in 2022, Poets&Quants recognized the Chaifetz School’s One-Year MBA program as one of the top 100 MBA programs in the country, coming in at No. 77. With over 1,100 accredited full-time MBA programs in the United States, that puts the Chaifetz School’s MBA program among the top 10 percent in the country.
The Chaifetz School currently offers 10 undergraduate majors and 13 minors to prepare students for successful careers. This includes a unique academic minor in service leadership which gives students the tools to lead positive change through coursework, leadership workshops and dedicated engagement with local not-for-profits. Students can further differentiate themselves in the job market with micro-credentials verifying their in-demand skills as part of the new Mission Meets the Market Digital Badge Program.
Founded in 1910, the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University has shaped the future of industry for more than a century as one of the oldest business schools west of the Mississippi. Today, SLU's business school continues to build on its reputation as a leader in business education through its commitment to inclusion, innovation and impact with undergraduate and graduate programs nationally recognized by U.S. News & World Report, Poets&Quants and The Princeton Review.
