US Undergraduate Business School Ranking

Hi all,

as part of my undergraduate business studies in Europe, I am looking to go to the US for a semester abroad. We have multiple partner universities there.

I was trying online to find a reliable source in order to rank these universities and decide where I wanted to go. I used rankings from the Financial Times, as well as us, however, these are for MBAs or Masters or don't include all of the universities.

Could any of you help me with ranking the universities, or provide other ranking sources?


Our partner universities:

Clemson University, College of Business & Behavioral Science, Clemson, South Carolina
Fairfield University, School of Business, Fairfield, Connecticut
Otterbein University, Department of Business, Accounting & Economics, Westerville, Ohio
Texas A&M University, Mays Business School, College Station, Texas
Tulane University, A.B. Freeman School of Business, New Orleans, Louisiana
University of California, all campuses, California
University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management, Minneapolis, Minnesota
University of Michigan - Stephen M. Ross school of Business
University of Missouri, Trulaske College of Business, Columbia, Missouri
University of Richmond, Robins School of Business, Richmond, Virginia
Whitworth Graduate School of International Management, Spokane, Washington

In order I would choose:

University of California Berkeley

University of Michigan 

University of California Los Angeles


Texas A&M

But honestly since It's just a study abroad I would choose where you think you can have the most fun - all will give a decent foundational business education.

Great, thanks!

I also have the opportunity to go to Canada, to Queen's University, Smith SoB, Kingston - any thoughts on where on this ranking I should place it? 

As far as I'm aware it's considered one of Canada's top universities, but how prestigious is that really when compared to those pics in the US?
