Celebrating Success

On behalf of the UND College of Business and Public Administration, we are proud to share and celebrate our latest achievement of being named to the 2018 U.S. News & World Report’s list of Best Undergraduate Business Programs. The CoBPA is now among just 250 ranked business schools in the nation, and at number 216, is the only ranked program in the state.

We’re thrilled to be among the small number of ranked business schools. It validates the quality of our programs in ways that only national peer endorsement can, and underscores all of the hard work that we put into making sure that our students have the best possible education.

Along with the undergraduate program honor, the CoBPA was also recognized by U.S. News on Tuesday for its online master’s programs. It was ranked number 29 (a tie) for Best Online MBA, and tied for 43rd in Best Online Graduate Business Programs (excluding MBA).

These distinguished recognitions also connect to our recent announcement of receiving our re-accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International, placing us among the top five percent of business schools in the world.

The AACSB stamp recognizes that we create a breadth, depth, and overall quality of business education that sets our students up to have productive and successful careers, and meaningful and engaged lives.

We’re proud of these rankings because they indicate our leadership in business education and reflect our contributions to North Dakota’s flagship university and its vision to be the Chief Opportunity Engine for the State and its people.

A sincere thank you to all of our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends for your commitment and dedication to the College and University in achieving these accomplishments and providing world-class business education.

At the CoBPA, we are leaders in action!
