CSU College of Business rises to the top

Looking to get a degree in business administration? Colorado State University’s College of Business is the place to go — the College of Business finished fourth in the “best administered” category in the “Best 296 Business Schools” book for 2013.

Ajay Menon, dean of the College of Business, accredits this ranking to a combination of the faculty and the culture of the college.


“We have a culture of being student-centric,” Menon said. “(We don’t) necessarily (give them) what they want, but what they need.”

The College of Business Career Center is one resources the college provides for students.  The center’s main objective is to help students find a job after graduation.

Ninety percent of students get a professional job offer within 90 days of graduating from the College of Business, according to Melissa Luna, manager of Employer Services at the Career Management Center.

“Our goal, and our objective, is the placement of our students,” Luna said.

Luna said The College of Business’s Career Management Center isn’t comparable to the university’s career center because of the close proximity the business center has to its students.

“We reside inside a college,” Luna said. “That aspect in itself is unique because we literally live with the students, the faculty and the staff.”

Not all students use the career center for help. Kendall Hershey a senior business major said she has never taken advantage of the resources at the college’s career center. However, she says the college has still prepared her in other ways.

“The College of Business, in general, stresses having a strong resume,” Hershey said.

All of these resources prove to be helpful to students.


“The favorite part of my job is seeing when a student, something clicks with them and they get excited about identifying their career fit,” Luna said. “That makes it worth it.”
