The University of New Hampshire is also known for a surprisingly overrated business program (Whittemore School of Business Education). Local high school guidance counselors and school advisors are known to say that they have a "top rated business program." This is nothing more than an unsupported fact said to help sway the students. In the USNews 2002 rankings it received a score of 2.5 out of 5, ranking near the bottom of a list of 150. Many currently enrolled Business students are surprised to find out that UNH's Business program is not nearly what it's advertised as. A few professors with tenure have openly stated that the program has been declining drastically in the past 3 to 5 years. The reason being that the new incoming professors have few publishings, especially publishings in credible journals and such. The school has a few other credible departments, but don't confuse it's massive size with quality. Like the US Government, it's been proven that getting bigger is not always getting better.
