The College of Business at Illinois State University is ranked 95th nationally in the 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek Best Undergraduate Business Schools rankings. This marks the fifth year in a row that the College of Business has been ranked by Bloomberg Businessweek. Illinois State is ranked 41st nationally for public schools and is the second highest ranked public school in Illinois.

Bloomberg Businessweek magazine surveys both students and employers to arrive at the rankings. The overall academic quality of undergraduate programs is assessed along with the percentage of students who go on to pursue an MBA.

“This recognition, combined with the College’s AACSB business and separate accounting accreditation and the national rankings and recognitions of many of our degree programs, confirms that the College of Business is one of the premier undergraduate business programs in the nation,” said Gerry McKean, interim dean of the College of Business. “The Bloomberg Businessweek recognition is the result of the College’s outstanding faculty and staff, engaged business partners, active alumni and friends of the College, and the quality of students seeking preparation for careers in business.”
