"At the Merrick School of Business, we strive to show steady improvement in an assessment like this, which balances reputational factors alongside strict data points," said Dean Murray Dalziel. "As we climb each rung, we're demonstrating to our peers that we're working diligently to respond to what students need in the marketplace. But it's our students, not news outlets conducting rankings, that tell us how we're doing. We’re happy to be recognized by U.S. News, but even happier when our students let us know that we are delivering an excellent, relevant education."
