Marquette University is a private university located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Undergraduate business students at Marquette can pick from 11 majors and seven minors. Marquette University was ranked for the first time ever this year in the Poets&Quants for Undergraduates’ Best Business Schools ranking and debuted at 90th place. Marquette was held back this year because it was unable to meet the minimum alumni response rate and only earned a score in two out of three of our methodological categories.

For the areas that Marquette was ranked, the school did well. Marquette placed No. 79 in the admissions category and No. 58 in the employment outcomes category. Some 85.7% of 2019 graduates had at least one business-related internship before graduating. In 2018, that rate was 91.3%.

Some 14% of those with jobs reported an average signing bonus of $51,73. Just 12% of 2019 graduates that wanted a job were still seeking employment three months after graduation.
