WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. April, 4, 2014 (Korea Bizwire)–Bloomberg Businessweek ranked Wake Forest University’s  Undergraduate Business program first in the nation for academic quality  for the sixth consecutive year and 11th overall. “The Best  Undergraduate Business Schools” ranking report was released on April 4th.

The Wake Forest School of Business improved significantly in student  satisfaction and recruiter sentiment to drive the ranking up 7 spots  from 18th overall in 2013.

“The combination of a rigorous education and hands-on internship  experience prepares students to succeed in their new careers,” said Dean  of Business Steve Reinemund. “We are very proud to achieve the top  academic quality rank for the sixth consecutive year, and applaud our  hard-working students and dedicated faculty and staff for this  achievement.”

“Our student satisfaction results demonstrate how much they value their  experience at Wake Forest,” said Pat Dickson, associate dean of  undergraduate programs and associate professor. “The students we  attract, the faculty members who challenge them, and the staff members  who support them through our rigorous curriculum all play crucial roles  in strengthening and sustaining the transformative experience we offer.”

“Wake Forest’s business program is unique in that it offers small class  sizes and very personal attention from teachers and faculty yet has a  very strong national reputation which attracts some of the largest and  most successful companies to recruit at our school,” wrote one of the  students who responded to the Bloomberg Businessweek survey.

Recruiter satisfaction helped Wake Forest achieve its high national  ranking. “We have seen significant increases in on-campus recruiting and  job postings and are attracting the very best companies who value the  kind of performance-ready professionals Wake Forest produces. While many  organizations return year after year, we are also seeing new companies  visiting to offer great internships and full-time opportunities,” said  Mercy Eyadiel, executive director of employer relations at Wake Forest  University.

To calculate the ranking, Bloomberg Businessweek compiles  surveys of more than 28,000 senior business majors and 322 corporate  recruiters. The full methodology, interactive tables,  in-depth profiles and complete 2014 ranking of the best undergraduate  business schools, is available online at:www.businessweek.com/bschools/undergraduate/.
