Mānoa’s Shidler College of Business claimed a spot among the nation’s best business programs, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek’s annual list of top undergraduate business programs. In the 2010 rankings, the college placed in the top 100 among nearly 500 accredited undergraduate business programs nationwide. Shidler was listed 10th in the Western region, 52nd among public schools and 99th in overall rank.

Shidler was one of only six new schools to enter the BusinessWeek rankings this year. Eligibility criteria included program size, age, test scores, grade point averages and number of full-time tenured faculty. The rankings are based on five sources consisting of student surveys, recruiter surveys, median starting salaries for graduates, the number of graduates admitted to 35 top MBA programs and an academic quality measure.

“We are honored that Bloomberg BusinessWeek has recognized the college among the top 100 best business schools in the nation,” says Dean V. Vance Roley. “We have made substantial investments in our students, programs and faculty and have significantly increased our relationships in various business communities around the world.”
