BusinessWeek ranks Daniels tops in Colorado

BusinessWeek magazine has announced that the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business is ranked No. 74 in the 2010 BusinessWeek undergraduate programs ranking.

Daniels also is the top undergraduate business school in the state, according to BusinessWeek, which ranked Colorado State University No. 84 and Leeds School of Business at CU-Boulder No. 93.

The report, “Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s Best Undergraduate Business Programs,” uses a methodology that includes nine measures of student satisfaction, post-graduation outcomes and academic quality.

The survey asked corporate recruiters which programs turn out the best graduates and asked each institution 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.

“What this ranking shows is that both our students and recruiters acknowledge the quality of our undergraduate educational program,” said Christine Riordan, dean of the Daniels College of Business.  “While we have a century-old tradition of rigorous academics, the cornerstone of the Daniels experience remains teaching the critical thinking skills needed to make a difference and achieve success in the business world. As part of our strategic plan, we remain committed to continually improving the undergraduate experience at Daniels.”

In October 2009, the Daniels College of Business Executive MBA program was ranked No. 85 in the world by the Financial Times — the only Colorado school to be ranked — in addition to being named No. 20 in the world for teaching business ethics by the Aspen Institute. In November 2009, BusinessWeek ranked the Daniels Professional MBA program for working professionals 53rd in the country, and Daniels was the only Colorado business school in the rankings.
