All The Employment & Internship Data Reported In Our 2024 Undergrad B-School Ranking

Gainful employment is a big motivator for getting a business degree. After all, what good are those soaring salaries if you can’t find an employer to pay them?

The good news: Business graduates from many schools can expect to have a job offer within 90 days of walking the stage, according to data collected in our 2024 ranking of the Best Undergraduate Business Schools in the United States.

Two schools placed every graduate who sought a job for the Class of 2023: University of Richmond’s Robins School of Business (ranked No. 18 overall in our 2024 ranking) and Florida Southern College School of Business (ranked No. 42 overall).

The Robins School, based in Virginia, consistently reports among the highest employment rates for graduates three months after commencement. It placed 98.8% of graduates from the Class of 2022 and 100% from the Class of 2021. Florida Southern, meanwhile, placed 98.57% of job-seeking graduates in 2022.

Three other schools reported employment rates over 99% for Class of 2023, as you can see in the table below.

Overall, the 91 schools in the 2024 ranking reported an average employment rate of 87.57%. That’s a 2.5% drop over the 2022 average of 89.82% posted by the same schools.


Securing a summer internship is an important rite of passage for most business school students. Not only do they provide essential real-world experience and resume props, they often lead to full-time job offers for strong candidates.

Combined, employment rate for job-seeking graduates three months after graduation (weighted 50%) and percent of graduates who completed an internship during their school career (weighted 20%) make up 70% of the Career Outcomes portion of our ranking methodology. 

As with all metrics, some schools do better than others at helping students land those summer internships than others. Eight schools reported that 100% of its Class of 2023 graduates had at least one business-specific internship during their degrees. That’s the same number as last year.

The table below shows the schools with the highest and lowest internship rates – the percentage of 2023 graduates that had at least one business-specific internship before graduating.
