UB No. 15 in U.S. News & World Report ranking

For the second year in a row, the University at Buffalo has been ranked by U.S. News & World Report as being among the top national universities in the country offering the best value-a quality education at a reasonable cost.

UB is ranked No. 15-one spot up from the 1994 assessment-among national universities in the magazine's ranking of institutions in that category that provide the best value in terms of "sticker price," which includes tuition plus room, board and fees. The rankings appeared in the Sept. 25, 1995 issue.

"We are glad to see UB move up a notch," said President William R. Greiner of the magazine's best value rankings. "We think UB should move up a notch. We are working harder than ever to give our students more for their money, and that's a trend that will continue. Even with the state's budget constraints, we are managing to preserve very high quality academic offerings at UB.

"As this ranking indicates," Greiner continued, "we are in the company of some of the nation's 'powerhouse publics,' like UCLA and Illinois and Rutgers. We do the same kind of sophisticated undergraduate education, and we do it very well."

In a separate analysis, the School of Management was ranked No. 48 by U.S. News & World Report in the magazine's first ever ranking of the top 50 undergraduate business programs at universities in the United States.
