IUPUI and IU business degrees

February 14, 2008

The undergraduate business program at IUPUI used to let in just about anyone. At one point, only the bottom 10 percent of a high school graduating class was steered to Ivy Tech or elsewhere.

Got a business degree from IUPUI? It wasn't something to brag about.

As with many things at IUPUI, this is changing dramatically. For several years, the bar at the Indianapolis business school has been near 30 percent, and it probably will rise as Bloomington moves ahead with plans to elevate its own threshold above the existing 50 percent.

If you're a student, which program do you prefer? If you hire people, which do you like best?
