The Terry College’s undergraduate business programs moved up two spots in the latest U.S. News and World Report rankings, landing at No. 27 overall and 17th among public business schools.

In addition, four Terry academic programs were ranked among the nation’s best. The Risk Management and Insurance Program is ranked No. 3, Real Estate came in at No. 4, Accounting is No. 13, and Management Information Systems is ranked No. 16.

“I’m always proud when the high-quality work of our faculty and staff and great outcomes for our students are recognized nationally and beyond,” said Dean Ben Ayers. “While we focus on delivering an exceptional education and great opportunities for our students, it is great to see upward momentum across a number of measures that directly reflect the world-class faculty, staff and students that make up this college."

The annual ranking of business programs is based on a reputational survey of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions.

In other rankings announced by U.S. News, the University of Georgia moved up three spots to No. 18 among Best Public Universities. The state of Georgia is one of only three in the country with two institutions—Georgia Institute of Technology and UGA — listed among the top 20 public universities. In addition, UGA was one of only two institutions in the Southeastern Conference, along with the University of Florida, to rank in the top 20 among public institutions.
