The undergraduate program at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business placed 80th of 145 eligible programs nationally in rankings published this week by Bloomberg Businessweek. The school jumped 26 places from its previous rank of 106.

According to Businessweek, it ranks undergraduate business programs that meet requirements for accreditation, SAT and ACT test scores, and other factors. The magazine’s editors use a methodology that includes nine measures of student satisfaction, post-graduation outcomes and academic quality.

“To move this quickly up the rankings is a sign that the efforts of our faculty, staff, students and benefactors are building on our tradition of excellence,” said Dr. Christopher Puto, dean and holder of the Opus Distinguished Chair in Marketing. I could not be more grateful or proud of what they have accomplished. I am pleased that our mission to educate highly principled global business leaders is being recognized.Continue Reading

Opus Magnum Top 10 of 2012: #7

As the new year starts off, we’re looking back at the ten most popular posts on Opus Magnum from 2012. Today we’re down to #7, which takes us back to a big day for the Opus College of Business this year, when the UST MBA Program Earned its Top 25 Percent Ranking.

 The Full-time UST MBA program vaulted from being previously unranked to being ranked among the top 25 percent of the nation’s accredited business schools, as published by U.S. News & World Report.

This was the first opportunity for the Opus College of Business to be ranked by U.S. News because the news outlet only considers schools that hold accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International. UST’s Opus College of Business gained that accreditation in December 2010.

“We always believed we had an outstanding business school but there wasn’t a good way to demonstrate that,” commented Dr. Christopher Puto, dean and holder of the Opus Distinguished Chair in Marketing. “To move from being unranked to the top 25 percent is a wonderful affirmation. This initial ranking recognizes the efforts of our faculty, staff, students and benefactors.  I could not be more grateful or proud of what they have accomplished.”

How Minneapolis Measures up in Forbes’ Subcategories:

  • #1 = America’s Safest Cities
  • #19 = Best Cities for Singles
