Three top-ranked business schools, in the United States, China, and Spain
For more than 90 years, the McIntire School of Commerce has been regarded as one of the finest business schools in the United States, offering world-class programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. McIntire is widely recognized for its unwavering pursuit of excellence, both in teaching and in research, and for its commitment to producing thoughtful, innovative graduates who become leaders in global business and society.
In the nine years (2006-2014) that Bloomberg Businessweek has ranked American undergraduate business programs, McIntire is the only program to be ranked either #1 or #2 each year, and the School’s graduate programs have likewise received numerous accolades, including the M.S. in Commerce Program being ranked #1 by Value Colleges (2015) and #2 in the world by The Economist (2017) and the M.S. in Accounting Program being ranked #1 by faculty size by Public Accounting Report (2015). Housed within the esteemed University of Virginia, McIntire is home to an internationally diverse community of students and faculty, each of whom contributes to—and benefits from—the School’s innovative, real-world approach to global business education.
