Posted: Thursday, January 3, 2019
The University of Evansville’s Schroeder School of Business has been ranked 71 (#3 among small private business schools) in the third annual Best Undergraduate Business Schools 2018 rankings by Poets & Quants for Undergrads, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news.
“It’s great to have the Schroeder School of Business recognized by Poets & Quants as one of the best business schools,” said Greg Rawski, Schroeder Family Dean. “It is particularly heartening to know that our alumni highly value our faculty for their teaching excellence and mentorship, and receive a signature experience in career outcome support.”
The rankings are based on a representative survey of more than 13,000 recent graduates and school-reported data across 88 schools focusing on admissions standards, academic experience, and employment placement. Recent graduates were also asked about the ability of faculty to connect with students. The Schroeder School did well in this area, receiving an A+ for mentoring students and an A for faculty’s availability outside of the classroom. The Schroeder School was ranked 34 (#3 among small private schools) for quality of teaching.
The Schroeder School was ranked at 42 (#3 among small private universities) in the career outcome category. Poets & Quants stated that the school performed well in this category by “doing something that might seem simple on the surface but is not always that easy. It got its students jobs. Nearly 96% of the graduating Class of 2018 that were seeking jobs were employed full-time within three months of graduation.”
The Schroeder School has recently placed graduates at leading companies like Cisco Systems, Fiat Chrysler, Deloitte, Disney, and a slew of other blue chip firms and companies.
