Business School Receives National Ranking
Poets&Quants for Undergrads, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news, unveiled
its second annual Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2017 ranking and included Saint
Louis University’s John Cook School of Business as one of the top 82 business schools
in the country.
The list is considered the one of the most comprehensive assessments of undergraduate
business programs in the nation.
The magazine compiled the 2017 exclusive ranking based on a representative survey
of 6,288 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 nearly 800 business schools worldwide, the 2017 Poets&Quants rankings represent just over 10 percent of AACSB accredited schools.
“We’re proud to be one of only two undergraduate business programs in Missouri to
be included in the rankings,” Dean Mark Higgins, Ph.D., said. “The Cook School of
Business’s national ranking is a testament to the quality of our programs which make
our graduates successful business leaders.”
SLU’s business school ranked 81st and was one of only two Missouri business schools to make the ranking.
Founded in 1910, the Cook School is the oldest business school west of the Mississippi
and is home to top-20 programs in entrepreneurship, international business and supply
chain management and a top-25 program in accounting, according to U.S. News & World Report. The school graduates nearly 350 undergraduates and 150 graduates each year.
