UVA ranks No. 2 in undergrad business schools [February 29]


The March 10 issue of BusinessWeek ranks UVA’s McIntire School of Commerce at No. 2 in undergraduate business schools. (Wait, doesn’t this sound familiar?) The University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School took the first slot, but UVA is hot on its heals. “In several of the measures we use to determine our ranking, the two schools were virtually the same,” says Business Week. UVA received the highest ratings from students out of all of the 96 schools ranked. “The fact that graduates’ average starting salary increased by $5,500—or more than 10%—to $58,000, had a good deal to do with that,” the magazine observes. Wahoowa!
