St. Thomas’ undergraduate business program ranks 80th of 145 eligible programs nationally.
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.”
