Ohio University’s College of Business was ranked the 38th-best undergraduate business school and 15th amongst public schools in Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2016 review of the “Best Undergraduate Business Schools”.

“We are incredibly proud of this recognition for the college,” said Hugh Sherman, dean of the College of Business. “It’s no small feat for a residential campus in Appalachian Ohio to have built such a strong reputation for positive student outcomes. We promise students a special experience that prepares them for lifelong career success. This confirms that we deliver on that promise.”

Bloomberg Businessweek updated their rankings to place more emphasis on career outcomes during this rankings cycle. The ranking is based on four main metrics including:

  • Employer survey (40 percent of total score)
  • Student survey (35 percent of total score)
  • Starting salary (15 percent of total score)
  • Internship completion (10 percent of total score)

“This is a testament to the work of our committed faculty and staff, incredibly talented students, and supportive University environment,” continued Sherman. “It’s obvious that we are providing a great return on investment for students that choose OHIO’s College of Business.

OHIO’s College of Business moved up 41 spots from the 2014 rankings of 79th-place overall and 33rd-best amongst public schools.
