Leeds jumps into the spotlight at #20 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Undergraduate Business Programs at public universities—up from #22 last year.

“We remain focused on leading the way in business school education – and thanks to our world-class faculty and close partnerships with Colorado’s dynamic business community, we are making great strides in inspiring and educating next generation business leaders who are making an important economic and social impact,” says Dean Sharon Matusik.

The U.S. News undergraduate business school rankings are based exclusively on judgements of the quality of business programs from deans and associate deans from the 504 business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB)—the oldest and largest accrediting body of business schools around the world. Business schools that are accredited by the AACSB meet only the highest standards of excellence in business education.

The U.S. News annual rankings are the most quoted of their kind in the United States, and for the past 30 years have served as a valuable benchmark for prospective students’ decision about where to attend college.
