University of Missouri students polled by Bloomberg Businessweek gave the Trulaske College of Business an "A+" for facilities and services - a ranking that translates into successful job preparation. In fact, about 90 percent of both undergraduate and Crosby MBA graduates and 95 percent of accountancy graduates report employment. Due to the success of Business Career Services and the Professional Development Program, students report they are well-positioned for successful careers in business.
Upgrades in facilities include a fully-functional trading room complete with Bloomberg terminals used by students who manage the Mizzou Investment Fund. Classrooms contain state-of-the-art technologies, including network and database accessibility in all areas as well as two-way interactive video capabilities, enhancing the classroom experience. Students also access the Missouri Innovation Center which focuses on the translation of research innovations into technologies, products, processes, and new ventures.
"We are pleased with the results of the student surveys as they reflect our investment in their professional development. Through tailored internships, elite opportunities with the Cornell Leadership Program, and exposure to top-level executives through our collaborative efforts, our students can see the results of these value-added services. We are proud of them and we will continue to invest in their success," said Joan Gabel, Robert J. Trulaske, Sr. College of Business Dean.
Businessweek conducts the annual survey to identify the top undergraduate business programs using a methodology that includes nine measures of student satisfaction, post-graduation outcomes, and academic quality. The publication polled the 142 programs eligible for ranking, 86,000 graduating seniors nationwide, and 749 corporate recruiters for companies that place many business school graduates.
