The Jack Welch College of Business (WCOB) has made Bloomberg’s Best Undergraduate Business Schools ranking once again.

Bloomberg, a global business and financial information leader, recently released its ranking of 114 undergraduate business schools based on data collected from employer and student surveys. It also looked at starting salaries and internships. Nearly 30,000 students and recruiters from 600 companies were surveyed for the listing, according to Bloomberg.

“We are very pleased to be included in the Bloomberg list of top undergraduate business schools again this year,” said WCOB Dean John Chalykoff. “We are proud of the College of Business, its top-tier faculty and its students who have goals and ambitions for their business careers. We are proud of the work they accomplish and always look forward to hearing about the internships and jobs they land each year.”

A Bloomberg statement reported, “Every year, students around the country compete for a head start on conquering the corporate world by studying business in college. Since 2006, we have ranked undergraduate business programs to help guide prospective college students and their families in choosing the right degree program for the career they want.”

Students in the WCOB participate in the Welch College Experience, a unique program that offers a wide range of opportunities, including networking functions, the ability to start and run a business on campus, participation in golf outings and the chance to listen to and visit with corporate leaders.

All students enrolled in the WCOB are required to participate in at least one internship to aid in discovering the environments and careers best suited to their skills. Freshmen business students are required to work together on teams to develop a business plans for a new business or product and to present them in a Shark Tank-like format. The WCOB also provides opportunities for students to travel, study overseas and gain experience in today’s global marketplace.
