The College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has jumped 13 spots and into the Top 50 of undergraduate business schools in the latest U.S. News & World Report
rankings. The college checked in at No. 48 in the publication’s annual ranking of business programs, which were released Sept. 13.
CBA ranked No. 61 last year and No. 72 in 2013. Among public business colleges, Nebraska was No. 30.
“We are thrilled to be recognized among this elite set of business schools – both private and public,” CBA Dean Donde Plowman said. “We have had a singular focus to raise the stature and visibility of our college. This ranking, our growing enrollments, our new privately funded building, and our exceptional faculty and staff are indicators that we are making great progress.”
business-school rankings are based on peer assessment surveys conducted in 2015 and 2016. To qualify for the publication’s rankings, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business must accredit an undergraduate business program.
Chancellor Ronnie Green said, "It's obvious that CBA has been gaining momentum for some time, and so it's great to see this U.S. News
ranking confirm what we already know – that the college's energy and effort are paying off."
