BGSU College of Business makes list of top schools


Today Poets&Quants for Undergrads, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news, unveiled its second annual Best Undergraduate Business Programs. 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.

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.

Mary Ellen Mazey, Ph.D., president of BGSU, 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. We are proud to join Poets&Quants’ annual ranking.”

Raymond Braun, dean of the College of Business, added, “We are honored that Poets&Quants has recognized the incredible work that happens here every day. 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.”

John A. Byrne, founder and editor-in-chief of Poets&Quants for Undergrads, said, “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. We measure those returns and it’s no wonder that more parents are encouraging their children to major in business. 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. What we’ve produced is an invaluable resource for students trying to make smart decisions about where to get the best education for a successful career.”

Poets&Quants’ 2018 publication, “The Best Undergraduate Business Schools,” will be published in January.
