Good Business Schools

I am thinking of switching my major from Admin. of Justice to Business Administration. I was wondering what some good schools are for this program. I still would like to go into law enforcement but want something to back it up and most departments dont require a criminal justice / admin of justice degree. I am specifically looking at University of Washington in Seattle. I really like the school and would like to know specifically about this one if you GTers have any info. But other schools as well (preferably outside of IL).

If you still intend to become an LEO, any business school that will get you a bachelor's degree will work for you.

Key is the backelor's degree to make you a more attractive LEO candidate.

UW's business school is well respecte don the west coast as are some of the more liberal CA schools like Berkely, Davis, Stanford, UCLA, USC.

UT Austin
Ohio state
Univ of Michigan
Purdue
Indiana Univeristy

Pick a school that has some brand name recognition and you'll really never go wrong.

Just think about this, you go for a job interview and they guy goes where did you go to school, you saw UW and he has heard of your school = credibility and he may know someone who went there.

You say some no-name tiny butt school that only instate people go to as their last choice - downgrade.

But any bachelors in business is a good start.

I graduated from Indiana and I must say it's a really good program. Can be really challenging but the Kelly School is good.
