    Here's a list of rankings for undergrad b-schools:
    Undergrad - BSchools

    However, it's important to note that there may be special programs in a particular university that would entice you. For example, Babson College has a really great pure business program. In your freshman year, they'd give $5000 (I forgot the exact number) to you and other freshmen in which you guys have to create a business and it's a race to make the most profit.

    It really depends on what you want to study also; here's another site that lists out the schools by rankings as well as their top specialties:
    Undergrad B-School Rankings: Interactive Table

    However if you just want a general b-school, anything in the top rankings are good :)

    Yes, it is very important not to confuse the undergraduate business programs with the graduate programs. Many of the top MBA schools don't even have an undergraduate business program at all. Examples of this would be: Harvard, Stanford, Duke, Yale, Northwestern, UCLA, and the University of Chicago.

    Also, Business Week's list tends to give more emphasis to how the students and placement people rate the schools than the academics overall. Thus, if you look at USNWR's rankings, they will be quite a bit different.

    On USNWR's list, schools ranking significantly higher than on BW's list would be: USC (9th), Indiana (11th-tie), Illinois (13th), and Carnegie Mellon (8th).
    On USNWR's list, schools ranking significantly lower than on BW's list would be: BYU, and Notre Dame (neither makes top 25)--also Villanova drops to about 16th and Cornell to 11th (tied with Indiana).
