The University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business took the top spot on Bloomberg BusinessWeek's 2010 ranking of the nation's best undergraduate business programs, a first for the school. Students boasting about the school's commitment to ethics, Catholic beliefs, and passionate professors helped land Mendoza in first place, ahead of University of Virginia's McIntire School of Commerce, 2009's reigning champ. During an economic crisis that has left many young people unemployed, Mendoza also managed a strong showing in career placement, with 95% of grads landing a job offer within three months of graduation. Meanwhile, University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, which held the top spot from 2006 to 2008, dropped to No. 4, as the MIT Sloan School of Management surged four spots, to No. 3, on its ability to place graduates in well-paying jobs despite the tough times.
Here, you'll get an insider's look into the top 50 undergraduate business programs and which schools are best at helping undergraduates overcome the challenges of launching their careers in a recession.
