Walton College Among Top 30 Public Business Schools in Latest Rankings
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The Sam M. Walton College of Business at the University of Arkansas remained ranked among the top 30 public undergraduate business schools in the country in the latest survey by U.S. News & World Report.
The magazine’s “Best Colleges 2014” report ranked the Walton College 27th in the annual assessment. Among public and private undergraduate business schools, the Walton College was once again in the top 50, tied for 47th.
“All the credit for our high levels of recognition goes to the Walton College faculty, staff and students,” Walton College Dean Eli Jones said. “We have a team that is resolute in its continued commitment to top-level research, teaching, service and outreach.”
In the magazine’s rankings of business specialties, Walton College was ranked 16th overall in the Supply Chain Management/Logistics category and 13th in the same category among public business colleges.
Every year since the 2004 report, the Walton College has ranked in the top 30 among public undergraduate business schools and in the top 50 business schools overall. Walton College’s peer rating, the measure used by U.S. News to determine the rankings, remained unchanged at 3.2 out of 5.
In the spring of 2013, the magazine surveyed deans and senior faculty at all undergraduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Participants were asked to rate the quality of programs with which they were familiar on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished); 36 percent of those surveyed responded. The undergraduate business rankings are based solely on this peer survey.
