Carroll School of Management 6th in the U.S.

2013 bloomberg/businessweek survey of undergraduate b-schools


CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. (March 2013) – Boston College’s Carroll School of Management rose to a sixth-place ranking among the best undergraduate business programs in the U.S., according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s latest rankings of Top Undergraduate Business Programs.

The Carroll School climbed to sixth among U.S. business schools, up from 9th place last year and a full 10-place climb in the rankings since 2011, when the undergraduate program was ranked 16th.

Carroll School Dean Andy Boynton said the ascent into the upper echelons of US business programs has been greeted with excitement by the school, which enrolls approximately 2,000 students.

“We continue to be recognized as one of the elite undergraduate business programs in the country, which is gratifying to our entire community,” said Boynton. “The credit goes to our terrific faculty, staff, students and alumni who together have laid the ground work for this to happen through their talent and hard work.”

Boynton said the school’s increasingly accomplished reputation is just one piece of the larger story of BC’s rise among the nation’s best universities.

“The reality is that Boston College is an elite research university that delivers a great undergraduate education and the Carroll School is honored to be part of that,” Boynton said.

The school earned high marks from students for the quality of its teaching, academic culture, career placement services and facilities within Fulton Hall.

The Bloomberg BusinessWeek rankings are based on measures of student satisfaction, post-graduation outcomes, and academic quality. Approximately 86,000 graduating seniors at more than 140 universities received a 50-question survey focused on topics ranging from the quality of teaching to recreational facilities. The 2013 responses were then combined with marks from the 2011 and 2012 surveys to determine the current rankings.
