The University of the Pacific‘s Eberhardt School of Business is the best in the West among smaller universities with business schools and ranked no. 8 in the United States, according to new research by Poets&Quants.
The news website that analyzes business school data from universities in the United States has named Pacific among the finest places to acquire an undergraduate business degree for the second year in a row.
- Among smaller colleges with business schools in the West, the University of the Pacific’s Eberhardt School of Business is the best.
- Pacific has been ranked one of the best places to get an undergraduate business degree by the news website Poets&Quants.
- Admissions standards, alumni experience, and professional results were all considered in the rankings.
The rankings focused on three areas: admissions standards, alumni experience, and professional results, and were based on a survey of more than 5,400 alumni and data provided by schools.
Pacific is ranked no. 8 nationally among institutions with fewer than 7,000 students, up two ranks from last year, and 58th overall, up 12 spots from 2021.
Some of the country’s most well-known business schools are represented in the Poets&Quants survey.
The business school of the University of Pennsylvania ranked first in the US, followed by Georgetown University, the University of Southern California, Washington University in St. Louis, and the University of Virginia.
Pacific placed 33rd among all business schools in the US in the alumni experience category, which surveyed recent graduates about teacher availability, extracurricular opportunities and accessibility of the alumni network.
The Eberhardt Student Investment Fund is a cornerstone program for the business school. The fund provides students a unique opportunity to obtain real-world experience in the US stock market at the undergraduate level.
It was founded in 2007 with a US$1 million contribution from Douglass Eberhardt, President and CEO of Bank of Stockton, and has now grown to more than US$4 million.
Pacific is also launching a new bond-focused student-led investment vehicle. Regent Evan Dreyfuss and his wife Elizabeth recently donated US$1 million to establish the Dreyfuss Family Fixed Income Fund.
Only 2% of business schools in the world run an equities-focused student investment fund, and even fewer provide undergraduates the chance to manage a fixed-income fund.
