In the Top Ten!

BusinessWeek recently released their list of top undergraduate business programs in the U.S for 2007.

This year, Cornell's undergraduate business program jumped up four spots to place at number 10.

The article states that one thing that sets Cornell's Applied Economics and Management (AEM) majors apart is the breadth of their academic exposure.

"In addition to the variety they encounter outside the business program, students get a second dose inside, where they're required, strangely enough, to take a full year of biology—thanks to the program's affiliation with Cornell's agriculture school—as well as five electives ranging from consumer behavior to emerging markets. They're also encouraged to look beyond the program for business-related courses, studying human relations in the School of Industrial & Labor Relations, or leadership in the Johnson Graduate School of Management, home of Cornell's MBA."

How does this relate to eClips? Well, the eClips collection is used in undergraduate business classes - as well as courses across the university. eClips is directed by AEM Professor Deborah Streeter. Finally, much eClips content comes from business experts and successful entrepreneurs who happen to also be Cornell University AEM alumni!
