University of Missouri students recently polled by Bloomberg Businessweek gave the Trulaske College of Business degree programs an "A" for job placement following graduation. Due to the success of Business Career Services and the Professional Development Program, students report they are well-positioned for successful careers in business.
Students also reported an "A+" for facilities and services. 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.
The Trulaske College of Business also ascended in the rankings to #75 in business schools both public and private and placed #33 in the public school category. Of the ranked SEC schools, the Trulaske College of Business is #3.
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.
