U.S. News & World Report recently announced their 2022 College Rankings and the Charlton College of Business saw its undergraduate programming advance through the ranks.

The CCB program was ranked 166 in "Best Undergraduate Business Programs" among 514 undergraduate business programs accredited by AACSB International. Importantly, the program is the third highest-ranked undergraduate business program among public national universities in Massachusetts. In 2021, U.S. News & World Report ranked CCB 180th in the country – which equates to a 14-place jump in one year. According to U.S. News & World Report, the “Best Undergraduate Business Programs” rankings are based solely on the judgments of deans and senior faculty members at peer institutions.

Overall, UMass Dartmouth was once again named a "2022 Best College" and significantly jumped up the ranks on national student social mobility. The University was ranked #59 in the nation, up from #76 in 2021, and remains #2 in Massachusetts and #3 in New England.

According to U.S. News & World Report, the Top Performers on Social Mobility ranks institutions that are more successful than others at advancing social mobility by enrolling and graduating large proportions of low-income students awarded with Pell Grants. UMass Dartmouth finished ahead of twenty-eight national universities in New England, including MIT, Harvard, and Brown University.

“It’s critically important for students and society that our country’s best public research universities continue to serve as engines of opportunity for talented young people of limited means. As a first-generation college student myself, I’m especially proud that UMass Dartmouth is increasingly being recognized for our efforts to providing low-income students with great educational opportunities that launch them into high-demand careers and lifelong success,” said UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Mark A. Fuller.

UMass Dartmouth achieved National University status for the sixth straight year, a designation reserved for universities offering undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral programs and a commitment to producing groundbreaking research.
