    Notre Dame Takes Top Spot Once Again

    It’s business as usual for the three schools at the top of the 2013 Best Undergraduate Business Schools ranking. Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business retains the top spot for the fourth year in a row, the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce holds the second spot for the fourth consecutive year, and Cornell’s Dyson School of Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management is again No. 3. But as the following slide show reveals, there is a good deal of fluctuation in the ranks beyond the top three.

    Note: In-state tuition shown for state schools. Average class size is for core business courses. Except where noted, job placement is the percentage of 2012 graduates who received or accepted job offers within three months of graduation.
