The University of Akron’s College of Business Administration ranked in the top 100 undergraduate programs in the country by BusinessWeek magazine for the second consecutive year.

CBA moved up 17 spots in the ranking from 93 in 2009 to 76 this year. The college also scored seventh in the nation for recruiter satisfaction.

Although the pursuit of rankings is not an explicit goal of CBA, we recognize that such rankings provide validation to the quality of our programs, said Ravi Krovi, acting dean of the college.

BusinessWeek bases its findings on academic quality of the programs, post-graduation outcomes for students, recruiter satisfaction and student satisfaction.

Academic quality is measured by combining test scores, class size, percentage of students with internships and number of hours students devote to coursework. Post-graduation outcomes are measured by median starting salary and the number of graduates entering a business graduate program.

UA is the only public university in Northeast Ohio listed in the top 100 ranking.
