BBA program among top 5 for academics

      No Comments on BBA program among top 5 for academics

Goizueta Business School’s undergraduate BBA program is among the most academically rigorous in the country, according to Businessweek and Poets & Quants.

Citing the last Businessweek ranking of undergraduate business programs, Poets & Quants writes:

… Not to mention, academia simulates work in some key areas. As a student, managing heavy workloads and meeting high expectations prepares you for increasingly lean employers with big goals and few hands. If you study alongside other top students, you’ll find their abilities naturally rub off and raise your own. One more thing: Grades matter when it comes time to enroll in graduate school.

So how can you measure academic quality? Each year, Bloomberg Businessweek conducts its annual undergraduate business school rankings, which measure programs based on quantitative data (median starting salaries, SAT scores, faculty-to-student ratios) and qualitative data (recruiter and student surveys).

As part of its rankings, Bloomberg Businessweek calculates an academic quality rank. Here, they use five metrics to evaluate academic performance. Each school supplies three of these metrics: average SAT score (most recent class), the ratio of full-time students to full-time faculty, and the average class sizes in core courses.
