BUFFALO, N.Y. – The University at Buffalo School of Management was ranked as one of the country's best Undergraduate Business Programs in the 2010 edition of "America's Best Colleges" by U.S News and World Report.

The UB School of Management was tied for No. 57 out of 158 spots in the ranking, up from No. 78 last year and higher than any other business school in the State University of New York system.

The School of Management ranking was culled from a list of more than 550 schools accredited by AACSB International -- The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business -- positioning the school in the top 15 percent of accredited undergraduate business programs.

The ranking is based on a survey to deans and senior faculty at the schools accredited by AACSB International. Participants were asked to rate the quality of all business programs they are familiar with on a scale of 1 (marginal) to 5 (distinguished).
