Wayne State University’s (WSU) School of Business Administration is featured in the 2011 Edition U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges. The report lists the school among “Best Colleges Specialty Rankings” for “Best Undergraduate Business Programs.”

Of the 363 colleges and universities from across the country recognized for their undergraduate business programs, 10 are in Michigan. WSU’s program placed third in the state behind University of Michigan - Ann Arbor and Michigan State University.

“That’s something to be proud of,” said David L. Williams, dean of WSU’s business school. “Since nearly every major corporation in Metro Detroit employs working professionals with business degrees from Wayne State; our students, alumni and the companies that hire them also can be proud.”

Deans and senior faculty of undergraduate business programs were asked to rate the quality of programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

The 296-page report features a wellspring of information to help locate the right school, including a section devoted entirely to rankings of the best colleges and how the rankings were calculated.
