Notre Dame biz school ranked tops in nation again

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.

Overall, four Indiana schools placed among the nation’s top 50 undergraduate business schools, according to the annual rankings released Tuesday.

Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business again cracked the top 20, jumping two spots from last year to 16th. Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management improved 16 positions to 45th, and Butler University’s College of Business climbed 10 spots to 48th.

About 140 undergraduate business programs participated in the ranking.
