Kogod Breaks into 'Business Week' Top 50 Undergrad Programs

The Kogod School of Business made Business Week’s annual undergraduate rankings this year for the first time, landing at No. 28.

“We believe in investing in our students. Providing our students with the best resources, from outstanding faculty to a new facility in 2009, is a constant pursuit,” said Dean Richard Durand. “This is a wonderful acknowledgment of the Kogod community’s commitment to our students.”

Kogod ranked No. 10 in student satisfaction, No. 27 for academic quality, and No. 30 for the percentage of students who participate in internships. The school also received high marks for teaching quality (A+) and job placement (A).

Lawrence Ward, associate dean for academic programs, is particularly proud of how well Kogod fared in the student satisfaction category. “[It] amplifies all that our outstanding faculty and staff do on a daily basis to create and sustain a challenging, highly engaged, innovative, and rewarding academic experience for our students,” he said.

Kogod was one of three schools to make the rankings for the first time. Ohio University and Chapman University came in at No. 46 and No. 47, respectively.
