Northeastern business school is 26th best
At the head of the list was the University of Pennsylvania.
Other area institutions that BusinessWeek cited for having strong undergraduate business programs included Bentley College (31), Babson College (33), Boston University (37), and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst (58).
At Northeastern, administrators seemed ecstatic with the news.
"What does it take to be a leading business school?" Thomas E. Moore, dean of the College of Business Administration, said in a statement. "Great students, great faculty, and great programs."
