University declines in U.S. News and World Report rankings
By IDS Reports
According to a press release, editors of the report said, “some colleges and universities are much more determined than others to provide freshmen and all undergrads with the best possible experience, recognizing that certain enriched offerings, from service learning to learning communities to study abroad, are linked to student resources.”
The Kelley School of Business undergraduate program was ranked 11th compared to other undergraduate business programs in the country and second compared to other schools in the Big Ten.
“We are certainly pleased by the improvement in our U.S. News Ranking,” said Dan Smith, dean of the Kelley School, in a press release. “There are over 3,000 business schools in the U.S., and being ranked 11th clearly places us among the nations’s elite programs. We do not focus on rankings but, rather, on providing a truly world-class student experience.”
