FAIRFIELD, CT - Sacred Heart University’s John F. Welch College of Business (WCOB) has been included on Bloomberg Businessweek’s list of top U.S. undergraduate business schools. The WCOB was named for Jack Welch, legendary former chairman and CEO of the General Electric Company, in 2006.
A total of 132 U.S. undergraduate business programs are included in the 2014 Bloomberg Businessweek rankings, which are based on five components: student assessment, academic quality metrics, employer opinion, median starting salary, and a “feeder school” score that reflects how many students undergrad programs send to top MBA programs.
“We are very pleased to be included in Bloomberg Businessweek’s list of top undergraduate business schools,” said WCOB Dean John Chalykoff. “We are proud of the John F. Welch College of Business, its top-tier faculty and students who go on top MBA programs or land prestigious jobs in the business and non-profit sectors.”
“Bloomberg Businessweek’s undergraduate business school ranking is designed to reflect the changing landscape of undergraduate programs,” said Francesca Levy, business education editor, Bloomberg Businessweek. “It gives prospective students a critical overview of the schools currently offering the best academic experience and the best post-collegiate opportunities—in other words, the best return on these students’ investment of time and money.”
The WCOB was also included in the Princeton Review’s Best 295 Business Schools—2014 Edition.
