Darden ranks high

Business Week magazine listed the University's Darden School ninth in its biennial rankings of business schools.

Pennsylvania's Wharton School retained the top spot, with Northwestern, Harvard, MIT, Duke, Michigan, Columbia and Cornell getting No. 2 through No. 8.

In reporting on Darden, recruiters were quoted as saying that Ted Snyder, who became dean in the 1998 fall semester, has invigorated the student body. In addition, Darden's graduate satisfaction rate rose 13 notches over the previous year, to second place overall, and it was cited for having the best teachers. The third aspect considered was a new component, intellectual-capital, that looks at schools' influence and prominence in the realm of ideas.
