New Business Building to Open Soon
This fall, the long-awaited new College of Business Administration building will be unveiled, with students and faculty alike eagerly welcoming its opening. Spanning six floors, the building is roughly two and a half times the size of the Glocker building that formerly housed the majority of classes for the college.
The College of Business Administration’s undergraduate program at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, recently has been ranked among the top-25 business schools at public institutions. According to U.S. News & World Report, the 2009 rankings show the university’s program coming in at 24th, up 12 spots from last year’s spot at number 36. While these ratings are among public institutions, the college also fared well nationally, moving up 15 places from last year’s 58th place to this year’s 43rd.
Also of note is the college’s supply chain management/logistics program, which ranked 5th among public institutions and 7th overall. The program has steadily improved in rankings over the last two years and is nationally recognized for its achievements.
