UW, Seattle U make top business school rankings

The University of Washington’s Foster School of Business ranked 55th among all business schools in the nation, and Seattle University’s Albers School of Business and Economics ranked 65th, in BusinessWeek magazine’s annual ranking of business schools.

The ranking was a drop for the Foster School,  which was ranked 41st last year.

The Albers School wasn’t ranked at all last year, but that was because not enough graduates from the small school responded to the questionnaire, said spokeswoman Barbara Hauke. The school, which was established in 1947 and has more than 1,700 graduate and undergraduate business students, has appeared on the rankings in the past. This year’s rankings can be found at http://www.businessweek.com/reports/business-schools/best-undergraduate-b-schools-2012

Last week, U.S. News & World Report ranked the Foster School’s part-time MBA program 15th in the nation, and Seattle University’s leadership executive MBA program 23rd in the nation, among graduate business programs.
