In its first ranking of the best undergraduate business schools, BusinessWeek magazine ranks Wake Forest University's Calloway School of Business and Accountancy 24th out of 50 programs in the nation.
Wake Forest is one of only two universities in North Carolina ranked in the top 25.
To determine the rankings, a total of nearly 100,000 business majors were asked to rate their school's programs on everything from curriculum and faculty to facilities and grading policies. The magazine also surveyed each program and each program's top 30 recruiters to find out how students fared after graduation in the areas of employment and graduate school enrollment.
"I am certainly pleased to be among the top 25 programs in BusinessWeek's inaugural undergraduate rankings," said Jack Wilkerson, dean of the Calloway School. "I am confident that as we remain focused on the ideal of creating the very best educational experience for our students, external validations like the BusinessWeek rankings will follow and even improve."
The complete rankings and profiles of the top 50 schools are posted on the BusinessWeek web site, and available in the May 8, 2006, issue of BusinessWeek.
The Calloway School offers a bachelor's degree with majors in accountancy, business, finance and mathematical business, as well as a master's degree in accountancy.
