Undergrad Program Ranks #2: U.S. News

The Haas Undergraduate Program again snagged the #2 spot in the U.S. News & World Report ranking of the country’s best undergrad business programs, tied with MIT. This is the third year Haas has ranked #2. The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School ranked #1.

The U.S. News Best Colleges ranking, released 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
#3 in management
#4 in marketing
#5 in finance
#4 in real estate
#4 in quantitative analysis
#5 in international business
#5 in production/operations
