Cal Poly Pomona offers one of the best business programs in the country, according to U.S. News & World Report’s widely-read “Best Colleges” edition.
In the magazine’s 2011 edition, the “Best Business Programs” section ranked the College of Business Administration 184 out of 1,400 institutions under consideration. The magazine based its list on survey results of deans and senior faculty at schools accredited by AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. AACSB is the premier accrediting body for business schools of which CBA has been a member since 1995.
The U.S. News & World Report ranking is the second time in as many months that CBA has been recognized by a national publication. In October, The Princeton Review included CBA in its 2011 edition of “The Best 300 Business Schools,” which honors the best graduate business programs in the nation.
“For years, our business programs have been considered a best kept secret in Southern California,” says CBA Dean Richard Lapidus. “Our faculty work very hard to provide high quality educational experiences resulting in market-ready students; something many employers have known for years. I’m glad our reputation is growing and that we continue to be included in national publications such as U.S. News & World Report and The Princeton Review.”
