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

The University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business was ranked No. 50 in the nation for best undergraduate business schools by Poets&Quants. The online graduate and undergraduate business education news publication announced its 2021 rankings Jan. 12.

“This year’s ranking assesses three core values of an undergraduate business education: the quality of the admits, what a school does to grow those students over four years, and finally how the marketplace responds to those graduates,” says Nathan Allen, project manager for Poets&Quants Undergrads. “In other words, what’s the quality of the incoming students, how do they view their academic experience, and what career outcomes are achieved by the graduating class?”

Poets&Quants compiled the 2021 undergraduate rankings based on a representative survey of over 6,100 alumni and school-reported data. This ranking puts the Daniels College of Business in the top 50 in the nation and the top 10% of all AACSB-accredited schools. There are 799 business schools in 53 countries and territories that have earned AACSB accreditation.

“We are honored to be recognized, once again, as one of the top business schools in the nation,” says Daniels Dean Vivek Choudhury. “We are dedicated to making sure our students can add value to their workplaces on day one. This ranking reflects the College’s accomplishment in achieving that goal.”

“Part of the reason our students are career-ready is that they jump into a business challenge during their very first course at the College,” says Tricia Olsen, associate dean of Daniels undergraduate programs. “The first course, called the Fourth Industrial Revolution, requires students to not only learn about emerging technologies; they are also required to develop a plan for a viable business using one or more of the technologies. We understand that the world is changing quickly and businesses will operate differently in 10 years’ time. We’re educating our students to flourish in this dynamic environment.”
