Business school rises in national ranking
The University of Mississippi School of Business Administration rose significantly in U.S News & World Report’s latest annual ranking of the nation’s nearly 1,800 undergraduate business programs.
The UM business school ranked No. 83 in 2009, up more than 10 places from No. 99 in 2008, school dean Ken Cyree said. The recognition places Ole Miss squarely in the top 5 percent of four-year institutions, including Harvard, Stanford, Northwestern, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, University of California at Berkley, Dartmouth, Columbia and Yale.
Cyree said his vision is for the school to be in the top 75 when it celebrates its centennial in 2017.
“I believe this ranking provides an outside evaluation of our school and an important benchmark of our progress,” he said. “Moving into the top 75 will not be easy because the schools we have to pass on the list will also be working to improve. We need the faculty, staff, students and alumni to work together to achieve this goal.”
