According to Bloomberg Businessweek, it surveyed nearly 30,000 students and recruiters at almost 600 companies to generate the list, which has a larger emphasis on outcomes.

The Whitman School’s undergraduate program offers eight majors, as well as dual programs with Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public CommunicationsCollege of Law and its iSchool. Students begin business classes in their first year, taking 12 classes taught by accomplished research faculty and seasoned practitioners, by the end of their second year.

Students also gain important “soft skills,” such as leadership and communication through the Goodman IMPRESS program, which uses a gamification and four-“house” competitive model, allowing students to earn points while building skills for career success.

Whitman’s Career Center offers students coaching and career preparation resources to allow them to reach their aspirations, including assistance finding internships and support for their job search activities and personal career development.
