Website of College of Business Administration earns 'five-star' ranking

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The World Wide Web site of the University of Iowa College of Business Administration has received a "five-star" ranking, the highest possible, from a highly regarded online resource.

The College of Business Administration is one of only 12 business school sites to receive the five-star rating from Marr/Kirkwood Official Guide to Business School Webs. Marr/Kirkwood site managers reviewed 145 sites in making their rankings.

Rankings are based on eight criteria, including faculty pages, student pages, the ability to apply for admission electronically, the posting of class syllabi, articles and current research, links to other sites, pages for alumni and job postings.

In his description of the College of Business Administration's website, Marr/Kirkwood founder Hal Kirkwood described the site as "exceptional."

"There is plenty here in the way of information to satisfy all types of visitors. Especially notable is the Alumni section with an electronic message board for communication and the interactive electronic markets section," Kirkwood said.

The address for the website of the College of Business Administration is http://www.biz.uiowa.edu/
