WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Sept. 9, 2015 – U.S. News and World Report ranks Wake Forest University School of Business undergraduate business program #34 out of 478 accredited business schools in the nation. The School has ranked in the top 10 percent of undergraduate business programs nationally, for the last nine years. The publication released its 2016 Best Colleges guide today.

Moving up two places to #21, the School secured its top-25 position in the Accounting category for the eighth consecutive year.

To determine its undergraduate business school rankings, U.S. News surveyed deans and senior faculty at programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). This year, for the first time, U.S. News used the two most recent years’ responses rather than just the most recent year’s to calculate the overall undergraduate business school rankings.

U.S. News and World Report ranked Wake Forest University #27 among 280 national universities, and recognized the University’s undergraduate teaching, innovation and value.
