Farmer School Ranks Among Best in the Nation

March 2012

Miami University's Farmer School of Business is ranked in the top 25 undergraduate business schools, according to BusinessWeek's seventh annual survey of the nation's best undergraduate business programs.

The Farmer School placed 23rd overall and 8th among those programs offered by public universities and colleges in the U.S. The rankings were announced March 20.

In addition to being in the nation's top 5 percent of schools, the Farmer School was the only Ohio program in the top 25 and one of only two Ohio institutions in the top 50. Since the inception of the BusinessWeek rankings, the Farmer School has continually ranked in the top 25.

"We're very pleased that the BusinessWeek rankings reflect what our alumni, parents and students already know," said Farmer School Dean Roger L. Jenkins, the Mitchell P. Rales Chair in Business Leadership. "The Farmer School delivers vigorous academics delivered by world class faculty; values an intensely personalized experience with faculty/students; has a strong global focus, and provides truly transformative leadership development opportunities through experiential learning."

The Farmer School's accountancy, entrepreneurship, and supply chain programs rank among the nation's best, in surveys conducted by publications in those fields. The Farmer School's part-time MBA program was recently ranked best in southwest Ohio.

"The Farmer School's undergraduate business program is truly "MBA-like" with its graduates' placement success," said Jenkins.
