Poets and Quants Best Undergraduate Business SchoolsThe Bowling Green State University College of Business has been named among the nation’s top 50 business programs by Poets&Quants for Undergrads.

The online publication for undergraduate business education news, unveiled its second Best Undergraduate Business Programs on Dec. 5. BGSU’s College of Business, in its first appearance on the list, ranks No. 47 overall, No. 24 among public institutions and second among Ohio's public universities. 

BGSU President Mary Ellen Mazey emphasized the University’s dedication to student success and to transforming lives.

“In the College of Business, our faculty and staff are preparing the next generation of business leaders through education, research and service," she said. "We are proud to join Poets&Quants' annual ranking.”

Poets&Quants for Undergrads compiled the 2017 exclusive ranking from school-reported data and a representative survey of more than 6,000 recent graduates. Alumni were surveyed on admissions standards, academic experience and employment placement.

"At a time when parents and students are confronting ever-increasing tuition bills and levels of debt, the return-on-investment of a degree is more important than ever,” said John A. Byrne, founder and editor-in-chief of Poets&Quants for Undergrads, describing the guide as a “resource for students trying to make smart decisions about where to get the best education for a successful career.”

“We measure those returns, and it's no wonder that more parents are encouraging their children to major in business,” he said. “The best business schools are a no-brainer investment because they are reporting record or near-record starting salaries and job placement for their graduates.”

“We are honored that Poets&Quants has recognized the incredible work that happens here every day," said Raymond Braun, dean of the College of Business. "This ranking reflects our staff and faculty’s hard work and dedication to our students and our business program, fostering an environment of excellence from start to finish.”

"The Best Undergraduate Business Schools” will be published in January.
