Pitt Business improved 14 spots in the ranking. Last year, Pitt Business was ranked No. 20 among U.S. publics and No. 40 in the U.S. overall.

The CBA also ranked No. 1 for public business schools in Pennsylvania, and was named the top public undergrad program for academic advising and the No. 7 public for career advising.

The 2017 Poets & Quants ranking is based upon three categories: admissions, academic experience, and employment outcomes. Each category is equally weighted.
