U.S. News calculates their overall undergraduate business school rankings by surveying deans and senior faculty at all undergraduate programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Participants rate the quality of their peer programs on a scale of 1 to 5. U.S. News used the past two years’ responses to arrive at the overall undergraduate business school rankings.
