Bloomberg Businessweek today announced that they ranked the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business No. 67 in the 2014 BusinessWeek undergraduate programs ranking. Daniels also is the top undergraduate business school in the state, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.
The rankings, Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2014 Best Undergraduate Business Programs, are based on five components: student assessment, academic quality metrics, employer opinion, median starting salary, and a “feeder school” score. The survey asked corporate recruiters which programs turn out the best graduates, which schools have the most innovative curricula and most effective career services. Each institution was asked for the median starting salary for their most recent graduating class, average SAT scores, the ratio of full-time faculty to students, and average class size.

Bloomberg Businessweek also ranked Daniels No. 12 for academic quality, No. 40 for private universities and No. 8 in the Western United States, which included Colorado, Arizona, California, Washington, Utah and Oregon. “The challenges facing business and organizations today require extraordinary leadership. Daniels provides both the foundation and skills to our students to solve global issues,” said Interim Daniels Dean Charles Patti. “This ranking demonstrates that our students and our recruiters believe Daniels provides graduates who can transform organizations around the world.”
