For the third consecutive year, Butler University’s College of Business has been included in U.S. News and World Report’s list of Best Business Schools. The College placed 141 out of 342 schools.

“We’re honored to again be among this list of best business schools,” said Dean Chuck Williams. “It’s validation that we are a first-rate business school that offers a strong undergraduate and graduate curriculum.”

The U.S. News Best Business Schools list is significant because rankings are based solely on peer assessments. Schools are ranked using feedback from deans and senior faculty at undergraduate business schools accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Participants are asked to rate the quality of all programs they were familiar with on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished).
