University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business ranked by Poets&Quants

The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business was ranked No. 37 in the nation for best undergraduate business schools by Poets&Quants. The online publication for graduate and undergraduate business education news announced its 2022 rankings Jan. 27.

“We believe the quality of business education comes down to three core issues,” said Nathan Allen, project manager, Poets&Quants for Undergrads. “The quality of the raw talent coming through the door, what a school does with that talent over four years, and finally how the marketplace responds to the graduates coming off campus.”

Daniels’ undergraduate program climbed 13 spots from the previous ranking, continuing to be in the top 50 schools in the nation.

“Once again, we are honored to be recognized for delivering an exceptional academic experience to our students that drives successful employment outcomes,” says Daniels Dean Vivek Choudhury. “We are dedicated to making sure our students thrive in an ever-changing environment.”

“Unlike many schools, our students jump into a business challenge during their very first quarter at the College,” says Tricia Olsen, associate dean of Daniels undergraduate programs. “This, in combination with our required professional development courses, means our students flourish here and beyond. We’re delighted to see this reflected in P&Q’s recent rankings.”

This is the sixth year Poets&Quants has ranked undergraduate business schools and the first time they changed their methodology. More information about the Daniels ranking and the methodology can be found on the Poets&Quants website. 

Editor’s note: Poets&Quants updated the ranking mid-morning Jan. 27. The initial story did indicate we were ranked 38.
