Rank School Name Location Description   Rating
1 University of California-Berkeley Berkeley, CA
UC Berkeley

Searching for an undergraduate business program with excellent prospects for future employment? Look no further than University of California – Berkeley. According to PayScale’s 2015-16 College Salary Report*, Berkeley business majors earned more money in their early career (0-5 years) and mid-career (10+ years of experience) than business grads from any other undergraduate business school.

So what makes Haas School of Business so special? Perhaps it’s the stated mission to “develop leaders who redefine how we do business.” The curriculum provides students with a solid understanding of how business operates and its role in society. Students receive core training in accounting, finance, marketing, business communication, and organizational behavior. But they also fulfill “breadth” requirements that expose them to the arts and sciences. In true Cal form, they become critical thinkers—a highly prized trait in a continuously changing global economy.

To enrich their educational experience and increase marketability, Haas encourages undergrads to study abroad. On campus, many students participate in business-related extracurricular activities. Join the 400-member-strong Berkeley Investment Group to practice hands-on portfolio management. Try your hand at developing a multi-million dollar campaign in the National Student Advertising Competition. If you’ve got the ambition, Cal has the outlet!
