Isenberg’s Poets & Quants Undergraduate Ranking Improves Again
January 12, 2021
In the publication’s annual ranking of undergraduate business programs, the Isenberg School of Management rose two spots to number 34 in the nation (from 36 in the 2020 rankings, and from 41 in the 2019 rankings) out of 93 American universities.
Poets & Quants compiles ranking scores for U.S. business schools based on their admissions standards—including average SAT scores, percentage of a class that finished in the top ten percent of their high school class, and the program’s acceptance rate. Isenberg ranks 31 in this category.
Academic experience rankings are based on surveys sent to recent alumni—in this year’s case, the Class of 2018. Based on their responses to questions about teaching quality and opportunities for business skills development, Isenberg ranks 33 for academic experience.
Career outcomes rankings are based on the numbers of recent graduates (Class of 2020) who had found jobs within three months of graduating, as well as salary and bonus data, and the number of students in that class who had completed internships before their senior year. Isenberg’s ranking for career outcomes this year is 42.
The high engagement levels of Isenberg’s motivated, exceptional graduates continue to bolster the school’s reputation as alumni progress through their careers.
