Rawls College Ranks among nation's best undergraduate business schools

LUBBOCK, Texas -

From Texas Tech University:

Poets&Quants for Undergrads unveiled its fourth annual Best Undergraduate Business School rankings on Dec. 20, which placed the Jerry S. Rawls College of Business at Texas Tech University among the best in the nation at No. 81.

"Our faculty and staff work hard to provide an environment in which our students can thrive and develop into successful business people," said Dennis Arnett, associate dean for academic affairs and undergraduate programs at Rawls College. "This ranking is validation that their efforts are working. It is a proud moment for the Rawls College of Business."

Poets&Quants for Undergrads compiled the exclusive rankings based on school-reported data and a representative survey of nearly 6,000 alumni across 97 schools. The ranking is based on three equally weighted categories — academic experience as measured by alumni, admissions standards and career outcomes. Rawls College ranked highest in academic experience at No. 70, which was based on a survey that included 17 core questions of graduates, each rated on a one-to-ten scale of satisfaction.

"The fact that our highest ranking came in the academic experience category is especially gratifying," said Arnett. "Rawls College prides itself on having a great culture and it seems our graduates agree."

In the admission standards category, Rawls College ranked No. 87. This category was broken down by business school acceptance rates, average SATs and percentage of students graduating in the top 10% of their high school class. Rawls College ranked No. 91 in the career outcomes category, which was measured by the percentage of students with full-time employment within three months of graduation, annual salary and signing bonus average, and the percentage of students completing a business-related internship before graduation.

Rawls College is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the main accrediting organization for business schools, and offers undergraduate programs in accounting, energy commerce, finance, information technology, management, marketing and supply chain management.

"It's important to note that there are nearly 700 undergraduate business programs accredited by the AACSB," wrote Nathan Allen, Poets&Quants staff writer, in the rankings announcement. "The business schools singled out in our debut ranking are all extraordinary, each in the top tenth percentile of accredited schools."
