The Foster College of Business Administration again ranked as one of the nation’s top 100 undergraduate business schools, according to a recent study by Bloomberg Businessweek. The college also placed among the top 50 programs nationally for the sub-categories of academic quality and graduates enrolling in ranked MBA programs.

“We’re excited to see Bloomberg BusinessWeek again recognize Foster College, its expert faculty and talented students,” said Dr. Darrell Radson, dean of the college. “Our undergraduate program prepares students to be successful by emphasizing consulting projects, which feature project-based learning and strong faculty-to-student interaction.”

When compared to other schools in Illinois, Bradley’s Foster College placed third overall and in the sub-category of academic quality ranked second in the state and 35th nationally. In the sub-category of MBA feeder school, which examines the number of graduates admitted to MBA programs, Bradley was again second in the state and 43rd nationally.

Bloomberg Businessweek has been ranking the best undergraduate schools since 2006. Last year, it also ranked Bradley in the top 100 undergraduate programs.

The business magazine ranked the schools based on surveys of students and corporate recruiters, post-graduation placements and academic rigor.
