Chaifetz School of Business Receives National Ranking

Poets&Quants for Undergrads, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news, unveiled its third annual Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2018 ranking and included Saint Louis University’s Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business as one of the top 88 business schools in the country.

The list is considered one of the most comprehensive assessments of undergraduate business programs in the nation.

The magazine compiled the 2018 exclusive ranking based on a representative survey of nearly 13,000 recent graduates and school-reported data. Students across the selected schools were surveyed on aspects of admissions standards, academic experience and employment placement. While the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredits 836 business schools worldwide, the 2018 Poets&Quants rankings represent just over 10 percent of AACSB accredited schools.

“We’re excited to see the Chaifetz School's commitment to preparing students for success after graduation recognized by Poets&Quants for Undergrads' 2018 rankings,” said Edward Jones Dean Mark Higgins, Ph.D. “This rankings relies on alumni survey results and this year those responses demonstrated the positive impact SLU's unique, hands-on business education has in the lives of our graduates.”

SLU’s business school rose 13 spots in the 2018 rankings to 68th in the country. The Chaifetz School was one of only three Missouri business schools to be ranked this year by Poets&Quants for Undergrads.
