2016 Ranking of Best Undergraduate Business Schools
“The schools on the 2016 Ranking of the Best Undergraduate Business Schools represent the very best business programs in the United States, ranging from Ivy League schools to top Liberal Arts and National Research Universities. Our rankings are based on factors actual college freshmen said were most important to their college decision. According to the most recent nationwide survey published by the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA, these factors include academic reputation, financial aid offerings, overall cost, and success of graduates in the post-college job market. Each of these factors were weighted equally in our ranking and data was derived from a variety of publicly available sources, including U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.com.”

Just a reminder for next week:
Through a reciprocal arrangement with the University, UCSD Extension offers a limited number of student grants to full-time UCSD students. Each quarter, students can pick up a student grant voucher, good for up to $500 off of one course (students pay anything over that amount).
Undergraduate students pick up their vouchers in the Extension Student Services office during the weeks specified below. Vouchers are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. Students must show up in person and show student identification to receive a voucher, no exceptions. Students graduating in the spring are not eligible for summer vouchers.
This is a great way for accounting students to take extra classes needed for the CPA educational requirements!
Winter 2016: November 16 – 20, 2016
Spring 2016: February 29 – March 4, 2016
