The University of Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business ranked No. 1 in the country for the third consecutive year in Bloomberg Businessweek’s seventh annual survey of “The Best Undergraduate Business Schools.” The ranking was announced today (March 20).
“We consider this a tremendous achievement,” said Roger Huang, Kenneth R. Meyer Professor of Global Investment Management and interim dean of the Mendoza College. “To us, it speaks to the collective effort and spirit of our faculty, staff and students. We also are deeply appreciative of our alumni, the Notre Dame Career Center, the University, and friends of the College for their constant, enthusiastic support.”
In comments accompanying the ranking, the editors wrote, “Notre Dame once again is firing on all cylinders … very strong academic numbers.”
The Mendoza College was rated No. 1 in student satisfaction, and No. 2 in the recruiter ranking for 2012. The survey also gave the College marks of “A+” in teaching quality, facilities and services, and job placement.
Rounding out the top five spots are University of Virginia (McIntire), Cornell University (Dyson), University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), and Emory (Goizueta).
Bloomberg Businessweek noted that students at Mendoza are quick to laud the school’s focus on ethics and its assistance when it comes to job hunting, as well as its strong alumni support. The article discussed the improved recruiting landscape and the positive attitude toward job hunting on the part of business students. Bloomberg quoted Huang as saying, “Students seem to be more focused on being able to get a job when they graduate. They want the broader experience, and many do have the desire to include some type of volunteer or service work. But they also want assurance that if I study ‘X,’ I will be able to get a job doing ‘X.’"
