The Haas Undergraduate Program again earned the #2 spot in the U.S. News & World Report ranking of the country’s best undergrad business programs, tied with MIT Sloan. This is the fourth year Haas has ranked #2. The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School ranked #1.
The 2017 Best Colleges ranking, released by U.S. News today, is based on a peer poll of business school deans and faculty/undergraduate directors, who are asked to rate the quality of business programs that they’re familiar on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished). Two years of data were used to calculate the peer assessment score.
Deans and faculty members also were asked to nominate the 10 best programs in a number of specialty areas. The five schools receiving the most mentions in the 2015 survey are included in the report.
In the specialty rankings, Haas ranked as follows:
- #4 in entrepreneurship
- #2 in management
- #3 in marketing (tied with NYU)
- #6 in finance
- #3 in real estate
- #5 in quantitative analysis
- #3 in international business
- #6 in production/operations
