The University of Kentucky's Gatton School of Business and Economics is ranked among the 10 most popular business schools in the country.

U.S. New and World Report recently ranked business schools by their "yield" rate, the number of students who choose to go to a school after being accepted. The top school, the School of Business at University of Wisconsin—Madison enrolled 90.4 percent of accepted students last the fall, according to U.S. News. The next highest rate was the Harvard Business School at 89.3 percent. Gatton is sixth on the list, with a yield percentage of 74.1 percent.

U.S. News noted that business schools at big public universities have become more popular because they are cheaper than schools such as Harvard or Stanford.
