PARIS, France – In its most recent ranking of
the Top Business Schools, Eduniversal ranked the E. J. Ourso College of
Business at 52 overall, an improvement of three spots. The college was
ranked in the 4 palmes category, and was the 30th ranked public
institution in that category.
Eduniversal, which began this ranking in 2009, bases
its listing of the world’s top 1,000 business schools on two main
categories of criteria:
- Peer assessment—Association to Advance Collegiate
Schools of Business (AACSB) Deans’ Recommendations Rating (50 percent
of the ranking)
- International reputation—accreditation, average
rankings, international academic associations, contacts, sites and
studies (50 percent of the ranking)
“There are 1,243 AACSB accredited schools and 706 of
them are public institutions,” said LSU E. J. Ourso College Dean Eli
Jones. “Once again, we placed in Eduniversal’s second-highest tier.”
Jones noted that three schools in this
year’s 4 palmes category were previously in the 5 palmes category and
that 19 schools in this year’s 4 palmes category dropped at least five
spots. Eight of those schools dropped 10 spots or more.
“The three times we have been ranked, our ranking has
been extremely consistent,” Jones said. “We are showing stability and
that is being recognized. Our globalization strategy is paying off.”
Other universities ranked in the 4 palmes
category this year include the Boston College, University of Florida,
University of South Carolina, Vanderbilt University, University of
Virginia and Wake Forest University.
