Syracuse University innovation and business programs gains in U.S. News and Bloomberg Businessweek rankings

Syracuse University’s innovation, entrepreneurship and business rankings saw double digit gains in the most recent U.S. News and Bloomberg Businessweek Rankings.  Syracuse was named a Top 30 College for Innovation, tying with Princeton in the most recent News & World Report.

The report also ranked Whitman’s undergraduate business program No. 51 in the country, up from No. 64 last year.

The U.S. News & World Report rankings are based solely on the judgments of deans and senior faculty members at peer institutions. U.S. News surveyed deans and senior faculty members at each of the 516 undergraduate business programs accredited by AACSB International.

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked Whitman’s MBA program as one of the best business schools in their 2022-23 edition, jumping 14 spots to No. 68 on the list.

Bloomberg rankings rely on incoming student data (including its diversity), placement success at graduation, surveys of the most recent graduating class, MBA alumni from 2014 to 2016 and recruiters. The recent graduates and alumni evaluated Whitman on topics such as their learning experience, opportunities to network and emphasis on entrepreneurial skills in their program. With the help of the business schools, Bloomberg Businessweek surveyed 6,422 students, 11,304 alumni and 778 employers for this year’s rankings.
