Lucas College of Business ranked 8th nationally by Money Magazine

Each year, Money Magazine ranks the best colleges for business majors by looking at schools that perform strongest in terms of affordability, educational quality and alumni success.  We are delighted to share that, this year, the Lucas College and Graduate School of Business was ranked 8th in the nation, a high-profile recognition of our students, faculty and alumni. This follows another recent recognition by Money, which ranked San Jose State University as the 4th most transformative college in the country.  A huge thanks to the many alumni who contribute in so many ways to our success and this ranking.
