Post Haste: Ohio overtakes Miami in business school rankings; There was a tiny house in front of Baker

OU jumped 41 spots in this year's ranking.

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Wednesday, April 20, 2016:

We beat ‘em on the gridiron, we beat ‘em twice on the basketball court and now this: OU has surpassed Miami in Bloomberg’s undergraduate business school rankings.

OU’s College of Business jumped 41 spots to number 38 on the yearly list. Miami’s Farmer School of Business fell 17 spots to the 40th slot.

Bloomberg relies on a relatively complex methodology that focuses on how well colleges prepare their students for success after graduation when compiling the list. They’ve ranked undergraduate schools since 2006.

But here’s the best part: Bloomberg announced today they will stop ranking undergraduate schools immediately. In other words, Ohio’s position relative to Miami is set in stone.
