For the third consecutive year, Cal Poly’s Orfalea College of Business has been named to Bloomberg Business Week magazine’s list of the nation’s top undergraduate business colleges, according to university officials.
This year, Cal Poly was ranked 73rd and was one of only three public universities in California to be included on the list.
A total of six California business colleges made the cut for 2011: UC Berkeley (13), USC (34), Santa Clara University (35), University of San Diego (36), Cal Poly San Luis Obispo (73); and UC Riverside (113).
Bloomberg Business Week bases its rankings on student survey scores, recruiter survey scores, median starting salaries for graduates, the number of graduates admitted to 35 top MBA programs, and an academic-quality measure that consists of SAT/ACT test scores, faculty-student ratios, average size of core classes, percentage of students with internships and the number of hours students spend preparing for class each week. The magazine ranked 113 schools.
