The Terry College of Business rose four spaces in the latest U.S. News & World Report's Best Colleges rankings, with three programs placing in the nation’s top 10.

Terry placed 27th overall and 15th among public business schools in the latest rankings, which cover only undergraduate programs.

The insurance and risk management program earned the No. 1 spot in the country, while the real estate program jumped to No. 3, up one spot from last year. Additionally, the management information systems program rose to No. 8, up two spaces from its previous ranking, and the accounting program jumped one spot, to No. 15.

“Having three programs in the top 10 is a significant achievement, and to see our college-wide ranking climb is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of the Terry College faculty, students, alumni and friends,” said Charles B. Knapp, interim dean of the college.

U.S. News & World Report rankings are based on a peer assessment survey given to business school deans and faculty members at institutions accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.
