Businessweek rankings 2016

Undergraduate College of Business jumps to No. 44 in Businessweek rankings

Bryant University jumped five spots to No. 44 in the 2016 Bloomberg Businessweek Undergraduate Business School rankings, released earlier this week.

For this year’s rankings, Bloomberg Businessweek used a new methodology that included a student survey in which Bryant's current undergraduates, who know the University best, ranked Bryant 25th out of the total 114 schools polled. The survey focused on the campus, career services department, and faculty and administrators. Bryant also ranked in the Top 50 in the country for the percentage of undergraduates who complete an internship.

“Our advance in this latest ranking attests to the entire Bryant community's hard work and dedication to excellence,” said Bryant University President Ronald K. Machtley. “Our academic leadership team and faculty, in particular, are to be commended for their deep commitment to continuous improvement which has moved us ahead and adds growing value to every Bryant degree.

The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking is just one of several prestigious national rankings that have recently recognized Bryant for its academic excellence. These top rankings include:

  • College Factual/USA Today’s 2016 rankings, which named Bryant the No. 5 college offering the best four-year business programs. Bryant also placed among the top 10 percent of all colleges and universities, and Bryant's Accounting, Applied Mathematics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, International Business, Management, and Marketing programs are all recognized as among the top ten in the country.
  • U.S. News & World Report ranks Bryant No. 11 overall in the category of Regional Universities (North); and ranked second among the region’s “up-and-coming” universities worth watching in 2015, the most recent ranking of that category.
  • With a "value added" grade of A-, Bryant is on Money magazine's list of "50 Colleges That Add the Most Value," otherwise known as schools that best help students exceed expectations. Bryant is also ranked No. 68 in Money’s assessment of 736 colleges that provide the best value for your tuition dollar.
