KNOXVILLE — The College of Business Administration at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has a strong reputation nationally and internationally, according to the 2009 Eduniversal survey, which ranked the top 1,000 business schools worldwide.

EduniversalThe college received “three palmes,” indicating an excellent business school that is nationally strong and has international links. Palmes substitute for stars, which are typically used in rankings; a multicolored palme is part of Eduniversal’s logo.

“It’s an honor to be ranked as an Excellent Business School among our international peers,” said Jan Williams, dean of the College of Business Administration. “The steps we are making in expanding our curriculum to reflect the worldwide stage are earning us unprecedented international recognition and awareness among business deans worldwide.”

Eduniversal asked the deans from each of the 1,000 selected business schools worldwide to decide which ones they would recommend to students by answering the question, “Which business school(s) would you recommend to anyone wishing to study in this country?”

Their responses were given to a committee of nine independent academic experts, who then ranked each of the 1,000 institutions.

The College of Business Administration also has garnered top rankings for its undergraduate business curriculum, full-time MBA program, executive-level MBA programs for working professionals, Physician Executive MBA program, supply chain/logistics curriculum, and undergraduate and master’s accountancy programs in U.S. News & World Report, Business Week, Princeton Review, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, Modern Healthcare, Kaplan Publishing, CPA Personnel Report, Journal of Business Logistics, AMR Research, Supply Chain Management Review and Forbes.
