Wake Forest's Calloway School ranks 21st among top business schools
March 3, 2008
BusinessWeek magazine ranks Wake Forest University’s Calloway School of Business and Accountancy 21st on its 2008 list of the top 50 undergraduate business schools in the United States. The magazine announced its third annual ranking of “The Best Undergrad B-Schools” Feb. 29.
To calculate its rankings, BusinessWeek compiles surveys of about 80,000 business majors and more than 600 corporate recruiters, median starting salaries for graduates and the number of graduates each program sends on to top MBA programs. The composite ranking also uses an “academic quality score” that BusinessWeek calculates for each undergraduate school by combining SAT scores, faculty-student ratios, class size, the percentage of students with internships and the number of hours students spend on class work each week. Wake Forest ranks second overall on the academic quality score.
BusinessWeek’s complete 2008 rankings of the best undergraduate business schools are available in the March 10 issue, on newsstands March 3. Expanded content, including the full methodology, interactive tables, in-depth profiles and a discussion forum are available at www.businessweek.com/bschools/undergraduate.
The Calloway School offers a bachelor’s degree with majors in accountancy, management, finance and mathematical business, as well as a master’s degree in accountancy.
