U.S. News & World Report named the Haworth College of Business one of the nation’s best business programs in its 2018 college rankings. The college joined just two other Michigan business schools on the list—the University of Michigan’s Ross Business School and Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business.

The list of best business programs is based on a national survey of business school deans and senior faculty. Respondents are asked for their assessment of business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

The college was also named an outstanding business school by The Princeton Review, with the organization specifically recognizing the college as one of the best places to receive an MBA. The college’s program was among 267 on-campus MBA programs on the list and more than 23,000 students attending the schools reported their experiences as part of the assessment. WMU students noted an emphasis on global business as a strength of WMU’s MBA program. Among the categories assessed by The Princeton Review, the Haworth College of Business scored high for academic experience and accessibility of professors.
