For the third straight year, the University of Notre Dame has taken the top spot in Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking of the nation’s best undergraduate business schools.
Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business scored highest based on Businessweek’s nine criteria, including surveys of senior business majors and employers, median starting salaries for graduates and the number of graduates each program sends to top MBA programs.
