TU Business College Earns High Praise from BusinessWeek

Thursday, November 15, 2007

The University of Tulsa was recently recognized by BusinessWeek for providing one of the best student experiences among the nation’s undergraduate business programs.

“The Best Undergraduate B-Schools,” published this fall by BusinessWeek, lists TU as No. 17 on its list of “Schools Where Students Have the Best Experience.” Joining the list with TU are schools including The University of Virginia, Notre Dame, Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University. The list was compiled from student responses to a BusinessWeek survey of more than 77,000 graduating business seniors.

TU was selected as one of only 121 business schools in the nation to be selected for inclusion in the BusinessWeek publication.

“The recognition by BusinessWeek is confirmation that not only do TU business students receive exceptional preparation for successful careers and graduate school, but they also actively participate in the well-rounded student experience available here at TU,” said Gale Sullenberger, Dean of the College of Business Administration.

The guidebook specifically praises the flexibility of the TU curriculum to allow students to specialize their studies, the opportunity for undergraduates to engage in original research through programs such as the Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge (TURC), and the college’s proactive approach to getting students practical internships and “real-world” business experience.

TU also was recognized this fall by its inclusion in the Princeton Review’s “Best 290 Business Schools.” Also based on student surveys, the Princeton Review praised the college’s “enviably low” student/faculty ratio, an intimate and supportive academic atmosphere, and a well-rounded MBA curriculum.
