For the second consecutive year, the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business won the top spot in Bloomberg Businessweek's ranking of the nation's best undergraduate business programs. The school fared well in all nine measures used to rank the programs, registering the highest score in student satisfaction and the third-highest in our ranking of corporate recruiters.

Emory moved to No. 3, up from No. 7 in the 2010 ranking, Michigan rose to No. 6 from No. 8, and Villanova staged a spectacular come-from-behind rally, taking the No. 7 spot, up from No. 20. Others weren't so lucky: MIT dropped six spots, to No. 9, Berkeley fell 7 spots, to No. 13, and NYU fell three spots, to No. 15. For a look at all the ups and downs among the top 50 programs, check out the slides that follow.

Note: In the slides that follow, information about annual costs, full-time enrollment, average class size, job placement, starting salaries, top industries, and top employers is self-reported by schools. Annual cost includes in-state tuition and required fees. Average class size is for required business courses. Job placement represents the percentage of 2010 graduates with job offers (or in some cases those who have accepted jobs) three months after graduation; when placement data three months after graduation were not supplied, placement at graduation was used. Median starting salaries are for graduates who reported employment status to the school. Top industries and employers are a sampling of those employing the most graduates at each school. Information on the percentage of students with internships and time spent on class work is based on a Bloomberg BusinessWeek survey of undergraduate business students at each school.
