The University of Mississippi’s School of Business Administration’s undergraduate program has been nationally ranked number 92 by US News and World Report.

“Schools that are ranked by US News and World Report are considered by peer evaluation scores, mean starting salary, employment rates for full-time students, mean GMAT and GRE scores, average undergraduate GPA and the acceptance rates of students,” said Dr. Ken Cyree, dean of the School of Business.

Cyree said that they have been continuously ranked over the years.

“Our online program is ranked as number 22 by US News, and number 1 in the country by CollegeChoice.net for our online MBA program.

“Business is incredibly competitive,” Cyree said. “I think it reflects the wonderful faculty that we have who are very motivated to do a great job in research and in teaching. They are very committed to what they do. We have an excellent staff. I think that, along with the good education that we provide, is really what drives those rankings.”

Cyree explained that an academic reputation is a big factor in deciding those rankings. Not everyone knows about the contribution of research from the faculty, but it certainly drives a lot of the value for the business school.

When asked about what key programs the business school has utilized that have helped accredit to its success, Cyree commended the solidarity of the programs create “a wonderful educational environment.”

The Business school has a new program in entrepreneurship, and according to Cyree, the program won a national award for Best Emerging Program earlier this year. They have also adopted a new general business major which will provide a more broadened based education for students who don’t know exactly what field they want to go into or who would prefer to be generalist.

“We are all about transforming lives with the power of higher education. That’s what we’re trying to do,” Cyree said.
