Fisher undergraduate program moves to 12th in U.S. News’ college rankings

12 local students admitted to business program

The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business’ undergraduate program moved up six spots to 12th place in U.S. News and World Reports’ ranking of the nation’s best business programs. The magazine publisher released the 2008 edition of America’s Best Colleges in August.

In addition to the overall rise in the ranking, two academic areas of study received top five recognition among the publication’s specialty rankings.  The Production and Operations Management program rose to fourth, up from eighth last year, and the Supply Chain Management and Logistics program maintained its placement as fourth best in the nation. The college’s Accounting, Quantitative Analysis and Business Management programs also rose in the rankings.

“These rankings recognize our program strengths and are just one way we measure our success,” said Stephen L. Mangum, acting dean of Fisher College. “We will continue to focus on Fisher’s strengths – developing high-quality graduates with the knowledge, skills and global perspectives required to be effective leaders in business.”

Fisher College of Business offers a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree at Ohio State Lima. Students can complete all of their coursework at the Lima campus. This business program focuses on general business management.  Admission to Fisher College of Business is competitive. In order to be considered for admission to the program, students must have a 3.0 or higher GPA. Twelve local students have met these requirements for admission for Autumn Quarter 2007 and will be attending Ohio State Lima:
