Elon's business school receives top-50 national ranking

Bloomberg Businessweek includes the Martha & Spencer Love School of Business on its 2016 list of the nation's best undergraduate business programs.  

Elon University ranked #48 on a list of top schools with undergraduate business programs announced this week by Bloomberg Businessweek, which each year publishes comprehensive rankings of premiere colleges and universities across the United States.

Doherty Scholar Kenny Straub '15 and Manasi Bhagia '15, a Business Fellow, work in the Doherty Center in the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business. The school has been featured among the nation's top 50 undergraduate business programs for several years.

Elon debuted in the Bloomberg Businessweek survey in 2011 at #60. Bloomberg Businessweek identifies the nation's top undergraduate business programs based on student satisfaction, a survey of employers, starting salary of graduates and internships. The focus of the rankings is to identify schools that offer the brightest possible career path.

"The ranking is testament to the dedication and hard work of our faculty and staff," said Raghu Tadepalli, dean of the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business. "Our students continue to be well received by recruiters and as a result our placement statistics are excellent. This is the fourth year that we’ve been ranked in the top 50 and this shows remarkable consistency."

Only three other North Carolina undergraduate business schools are ranked in the top 50: University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (#7), Wake Forest University (#13) and North Carolina State University (#47).

This year, 114 undergraduate business programs received a Bloomberg Businessweek ranking.

The Love School includes students who study in the departments of accounting, economics, finance, management, and marketing and entrepreneurship. The Love School includes a prestigious Business Fellows program, the Chandler Family Professional Sales Center, the Doherty Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, the William Garrard Reed Finance Center and an Executive Education program.
