I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not a big rankings guy. For as long as I’ve been an admissions professional, I’ve actively discouraged students from allowing rankings to influence their decision about academic fit. However, rankings do have a purpose in the world of admission and are one (emphasis added) factor of many that students can consider in choosing to apply to a school or program.
McIntire is very excited to announce that Poets&Quants for Undergrad has ranked the B.S. in Commerce #3 among U.S. undergraduate business programs for 2017. In addition, McIntire takes the #1 spot for alumni survey results, which asked recent graduates about the perceived quality and value of their academic experience. You can read more about Poets&Quants’ profile of McIntire here.
Despite what the rankings say, McIntire will always be #1 in my book!
