Bradley’s Foster College of Business received high marks in Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2014 undergraduate business program rankings. The College was among the top undergrad schools for academic quality and top-50 in MBA placements.

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

Foster College of Business also received an “A” grade for teaching quality.

Additionally, when taking Bloomberg Businessweek data of starting salaries divided by annual tuition, Foster College ranks as a top-10 return on investment (ROI) for private colleges of business.

“We are pleased that data shows we are providing a great product for our students,” Associate Dean Jason Garrett said.  “We are happy that our teaching is recognized at a high level and that job and graduate school placements for our students continue to be strong.”

Foster College of Business’s rankings don’t stop with Bloomberg Businessweek. Its undergraduate entrepreneurial program has ranked among the nation’s top-25 for the past three years by The Princeton Review and Entrepreneur magazines.

The College is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International), the premiere business education accrediting body.  It is one of less than two percent of business schools worldwide to achieve and maintain the AACSB‘s high standards for both business and accounting education.

“As our mission states, we are dedicated to teaching and learning,” said Dean Darrell Radson.  “Through experiential learning, academic excellence and faculty who bring professional experience into the classroom, we are proud of our recognitions.  But, we are most proud of the accomplishments of our students and graduates.  We will continually strive for excellence in everything we do.”
