Applied Business Technology School Rankings

In the US, a whole industry has arisen focused on the ranking of universities and colleges. The majority of these rankings are focused on bachelor's and master's degree programs at universities and 4-year colleges. However, the majority of programs in applied business technology are found at the community, technical and career college levels. This doesn't mean there are no rankings to consult, though! Two main sources of community college rankings are The Washington Monthly and Career College Week. There are also less "official" student-based rankings like StudentsReview, and some professional associations have reports from student surveys about various schools and programs which provide still more school or program "rankings." These associations--for example the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)--often offer awards and honors for teaching excellence, and looking at who they have honored can also be used to supplement your 'ranking' of schools.

Each of these sources, however, has its own particular set of criteria for evaluating schools and programs. In the case of the controversial Gourman Report (which ranks both undergraduate and professional programs), the author specifically refuses to disclose his methodology. How then should all these assessments and rankings be interpreted?

First, the ranking reports often come with detailed data to support conclusions, and while data collection may be subjective (in the case of student surveys in particular), the editors of these reports usually make an effort to ensure that statistics are comparable. So the reports can be used by you to compare institutions and schools on the basis of the data provided.

Second, the statistics that come from the rankings can also suggest topics that need to be studied in more detail. For instance, if you find that a school has a high acceptance rate but low retention and graduation, you may want to ask why.

All college rankings have one other thing in common: they are a list of institutions and schools. Scanning the list might suggest an applied business technology school that you had not considered or perhaps even heard of. Used this way, the rankings can help expand your list of schools that can then be researched in more detail.

However, you should never judge based on school rankings alone. Applied business technology rankings can be useful, but there are other factors that need to be taken into consideration. Schools that are less prominent may have a program that suits your needs better than any nationally ranked schools. Lesser known regional colleges can also be a good choice if you wish to remain close to home during your studies. Often times, these schools have the strongest relationships with local industries and employers. Once you have accumulated this information, you can create your own applied business technology rankings.
