Kelley School of Business rises to 16th overall Bloomberg Businessweek rankings

Posted by
The IU Kelley School of Business has advanced in Bloomberg Businessweek’s rankings, now placing the school at 16th overall.

This year, Kelley moved up in the rankings by two spots.

The school is currently ranked second among Big Ten schools and fifth among related programs at public universities.

To effectively rank the programs, Bloomberg Businessweek uses nine specific measures.

Part of these measures include surveys of senior business majors and employers as well as median starting salaries for graduates.

The number of graduates in grad school programs is also taken into consideration.

Calculation of academic quality, such as combining SAT scores, class size in business courses, number of students with internships and the amount of hours devoted to course work, is factored into the report as well, according to the press release.

Kelley School of Business Undergraduate Program Director Kathleen Robbins said although there is no direct way to track how accolades such as the rankings attract prospective students to the school, it is certainly a factor to some extent.

“It’s an important piece of the search process for students sometimes,” she said. Munirpallam Venkataramanan, associate dean for academic programs, said the school received “A” grades in terms of its teaching quality and resources offered to students, according to a press release.

“The rankings are testament to the efforts of our faculty and staff in attracting outstanding students to the Kelley School of Business and providing them with a world-class education and experience,” Venkataramanan said in a press release.

“Year after year, our students rise up to the challenge and excel, as evidenced by employers’ continued high regard for the talent they get from Kelley. It is gratifying to see the ranking is consistent with our internal assessment of continuous improvement in multiple facets of students learning, development and accomplishments.”
