In the category of academic quality, which is 30 percent of the overall ranking score, the SMU Cox BBA program earned a #9 ranking. In the student assessment category, SMU Cox ranked #11, which represents another 30 percent of the overall score. Employer assessment and how the school compares as a feeder to the MBA program are also factored into each school's total ranking number.

The student survey was sent to 91,604 graduating seniors at 152 business schools in the fall of 2013. Their answers were combined with those from the classes of 2012 and 2013 for the overall student assessment. Twenty schools were eliminated because they didn't meet Bloomberg Businessweek's rankings requirements. Of the students who received surveys, 28,842 of them, or 31.5 percent, submitted responses. The survey included 44 questions about teaching quality, access to faculty, school facilities, career services, and more. Each question recorded responses on a five-point scale.

"We are proud of our students and honored to have the opportunity to provide them with an exceptional educational experience that will benefit them as they graduate, and throughout their careers," said Albert W. Niemi, Jr., dean of the Cox School of Business. "SMU Cox is located in one of the world's greatest business centers, where students learn and are mentored by faculty with real-world experience, as well as by seasoned business professionals. Students who graduate with a BBA from SMU Cox have the comfort of knowing they are part of an extensive global alumni network—the connection to SMU Cox will always be there for them. "
