Five years in a row, the Neeley School of Business at TCU ranks in the top 30 undergraduate business schools in the nation in Bloomberg Businessweek’s Best Undergraduate Business Schools. For 2014, the Neeley School moves up to No. 27 and also scores A+ in teaching, A+ in facilities and A in job placement.  

“The success our TCU business students following graduation is a big part of why we continue to move up in the rankings, and a reflection of the impressive faculty and staff we have in the Neeley School,” George Low, associate dean of undergraduate programs, commented about the 2014 Businessweek ranking. “Even a move up of one notch, 28 to 27, is a significant accomplishment since schools in the top 30 work hard to stay there.”

Bloomberg Businessweek bases the 2014 rankings on surveys of 91,603 senior business students and 922 employers, plus a calculation based on SAT scores, internships, class size, student-teacher ratios, number of hours of classwork and average starting salary of recent graduates.

“Neeley faculty and staff are committed to providing premium learning experiences in the classroom and through innovative co-curricular opportunities for our students," O. Homer Erekson, John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business at TCU, said. “Recognition in these rankings is indeed a tribute to the high-quality professional development and personal attention we provide each TCU business student.”
