Krannert’s ongoing efforts to enhance the undergraduate learning experience were recently recognized by U.S.News & World Report, which ranked the school 19th overall among the nation’s best business programs as part the magazine’s annual “America’s Best Colleges” guidebook.
The ranking was an improvement from 2009, when Krannert ranked 21st overall. Several of the school’s concentration areas also moved up in this year’s specialty rankings, which were based on a spring 2010 survey of deans and department heads at accredited peer institutions and include only the undergraduate programs receiving the most votes.
Among the distinctions earned by Krannert were a ranking of third in production/operations management; fourth in quantitative analysis/methods; seventh in supply chain management/logistics; 12th in management information systems; 17th in management; and 10th overall among public universities.
“These acknowledgements show that the emphasis on student success in our strategic plan is paying off,” says Krannert interim dean Jerry Lynch. “Continuing improvements to our facilities, the outstanding work of our faculty, and the dedication of our staff are making a tangible difference in the lives of our undergraduates.”
