Academic Life at Arizona State University–Tempe

The most popular majors at Arizona State University–Tempe include: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services; Engineering; Biological and Biomedical Sciences; Social Sciences; and Visual and Performing Arts.

The Princeton Review has named Arizona State University one of the Best 386 Colleges in its 2021 rankings, which were compiled by surveying 143,000 students across the country. … Along with other strong academic programs and research opportunities, students also praised ASU’s “renowned business school

For the fifth consecutive year, Arizona State University is ranked by U.S. News and World Report in the top tier of national universities

ASU as a whole has a bad reputation, but it”s not a bad school. The reputation comes from a very high acceptance rate and status as a “party school”. The quality of education is nowhere as bad as the reputation and it is infinitely more credible than for profit places like DeVry or University of Phoenix
