The University of Pittsburgh College of Business Administration was named one of the nation’s top business schools, ranked #20 among public programs and No. 31 among all programs in the 2020 Best Undergraduate Business Programs Rankings released by U.S. News & World Report.
The U.S. News ranking is based entirely on a survey in which business school deans rate the quality of undergraduate programs across the country.
“The U.S. News Ranking is the best ranking of a business program’s reputation, and our Top 20 placement puts us in the highest echelon of schools and affirms the power of our mission of taking students From the Classroom, To the City, To the World,” says Tony Rodi, interim associate dean of Pitt Business.
Pitt Business also fares well in the other business school rankings.
Poets & Quants, an online publication that exclusively covers business schools, ranks Pitt Business as No. 11 in the country and No. 1 in the State of Pennsylvania among public business programs. Additionally, Poets & Quants ranks Pitt Business No. 1 for academic advising and No. 6 for career advising in the category of public programs.
In its scoring system, Poets & Quants take additional factors into account beyond reputation, including graduate job placement rates, alumni satisfaction, and faculty quality.
Pitt Business is also highly regarded in the most recent Bloomberg Businessweek ranking, which gave the school a #4 ranking among public programs in a category in which recruiters assess the quality of graduates.
