March 21, 2012

For the second year in a row, employers surveyed by Bloomberg Businessweek have ranked the Penn State Smeal College of Business as having the best undergraduate business program in the country.

The magazine surveyed 257 corporate recruiters as part of its 2012 ranking of the best undergraduate business programs. The recruiters were asked to identify which schools have the best graduates, most innovative curricula, and most effective career services. The recruiter ranking also takes into account surveys from 2011 and 2010.

In addition to the recruiter survey, Businessweek's overall ranking of undergraduate business schools also takes into account a survey of senior students at the schools and information provided by the schools themselves.

Smeal's overall ranking this year rose three spots to 22nd out of the 142 programs eligible for the ranking. Among publicly supported business schools, Smeal ranks seventh in the country.
