Business Programs for “B” Students

Not all teens aiming to be future titans of the business world will find themselves Wharton-bound. In fact, anyone not sporting an unweighted 4.0 and SAT scores of 1450+ is likely to land at a top-tier business school like Kellogg (Northwestern), Stern (NYU), or Ross (University of Michigan). Yet, that hardly means that there are not a great number of highly-regarded business schools that accept and educate “B” students. Public universities like UConn, Rutgers, and Georgia State University as well as private institutions like Fairfield. Baylor, and the University of Denver all have terrific programs and plenty of connections to many of the top companies in the U.S. For each school we will provide you with an acceptance rate, percent of students in the top 50% of their high school class, as well as middle-50% SAT and ACT data so that you can better assess your personal admissions chances.
