Schroeder School of Business Rises in National Rankings
Posted: Friday, January 3, 2020
The University of Evansville’s Schroeder School of Business has risen from 71 to 52 (#3 among small private schools) in the Poets & Quants for Undergrads Best Undergraduate B-School rankings, the leading online publication for undergraduate business education news.
The rise is based on feedback from Class of 2017 graduates. The “Academic Experience” as rated by UE alumni accounts for 33% of the final ranking score, and scores in that component ranked UE 28th overall, up from 64 last year. “These high alumni rating scores are indicative of the life-transforming student experience provided by the University of Evansville and the Schroeder School,” said Ben Johnson, UE’s interim Schroeder Family Dean. “It is a testament to our faculty, staff, and administrators across campus.”
According to the Poets & Quants website, UE’s scores were “buoyed by solid career outcome results... The school performed well in that category by doing something that might seem simple on the surface but is not always that easy. It got its students jobs.” 95% of the Class of 2018 who were seeking jobs were employed full-time within three months of graduation.
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.
Schroeder School graduates have found employment across the country in companies such as Cisco Systems, Fiat Chrysler, Disney, and many more.
