Lindner experiences second largest ranking increase of any Top 100 Undergraduate Business Program

The Carl H. Lindner College of Business rocketed 23 spots to No. 91 in the 2018 U.S. News & World Report rankings. This represents the second largest rankings increase out of the Top 100 undergraduate business programs this year. 

Further, when comparing Lindner to other public institutions, the program is ranked 67th.  The U.S. News undergraduate business school rankings are based on measures of academic quality, graduation rates, faculty information, and acceptance rates.

Lindner College of Business Dean David Szymanski says, "Being recognized nationally with the second greatest rankings increase is a phenomenal testament to the quality of our new programs and the talents of our outstanding faculty, staff and students."

The U.S. News & World Report rankings mirror similar strong rankings from other sources such as the 2016 Bloomberg Businessweek Best Undergraduate Business Schools where Lindner ranked No. 84 among all undergraduate business schools and No. 41 among all public undergraduate business schools.

These strong showings are driven by the tremendous transformation Lindner has made over the past five years with record setting freshman applications, enrollments and student quality. In fact, this fall’s incoming freshman class is the largest ever in the history of Lindner, while still generating the highest average ACT score (26.5) among any previous freshmen class.

Consecutive years of rising enrollments and additional faculty hires have provided Lindner with the need and opportunity to continue this transformation in a new facility. The $120-million new home of the Carl H. Lindner College of Business is currently under construction and will open fall of 2019.
