(April 20, 2016) -- The University of Texas at San Antonio College of Business was ranked one of the Top 5 schools in Texas and the No. 1 Hispanic Serving Institution in the nation by Bloomberg Businessweek in their 2016 ranking of Best Undergraduate Business Schools.

“Today’s inaugural ranking of our undergraduate business program validates what so many stakeholders have said about the college’s business programs,” said Wm. Gerard Sanders, dean and Bodenstedt Chair of the UTSA College of Business. “To be recognized for not only the quality of our academic programs but also for how we prepare our students to enter the workforce is monumental. Our goal in the College of Business is to transform business students into business professionals. Today’s ranking shows that we are accomplishing that goal.”

Focusing this year on career outcomes, they used four main metrics in their assessment: employer feedback, student evaluations, starting salaries and internship participation. Nearly 28,000 students and recruiters at 582 companies were surveyed for this year’s ranking. Businessweek has been publishing an annual ranking of undergraduate business programs since 2006.

The UTSA College of Business transforms students from the curious and hopeful into confident and career-ready young professionals. With over 5,400 students, we aim to be the best in class by focusing on educational programs that provide both applied business and technical skills in areas of high-workforce demand as well as professional and entrepreneurial skills that help students create value for their organization and integrate into the workforce. The college is a community of scholars who advance the art and science of business through rigorous and relevant research that is published in outlets of distinction and translated for practice in the classroom.
