PCSB rockets up Bloomberg Businessweek rankings

The Providence College School of Business shot up 34 spots to No. 75 on Bloomberg Businessweek’s list of the top undergraduate business programs, the magazine has announced.

“This is a tremendous accomplishment, especially given that we only became a separate school in 2007,” said Dr. Sylvia Maxfield, dean of the business school. “It is a collective accomplishment thanks to the efforts of faculty, staff, students, and alumni.”

Businessweek ranked the 132 schools on several factors: a survey of graduating seniors; academic quality, measured by criteria such as average SAT score of incoming freshmen and percent of students in business internships; and a survey of recruiters at 301 business employers.

PCSB had the sharpest rise of any school on the ranking this year, thanks to an improved employer survey score, according to the magazine.
