The University of Pennsylvania topped a new ranking of the best undergraduate business schools across the country.

Ben Franklin was onto something.

The founding father is also responsible for the school that became the University of Pennsylvania, and the Philadelphia school was just named the number-one college for business in the country.

Penn's Wharton School counts among its alumni President Trump (who told a crowd during his campaign, "I went to the Wharton School of Business. I’m, like, a really smart person"), and billionaires Warren Buffett, Leonard Lauder, and Ron Perelman.

Educational institution data company Niche, which released its latest ranking of the best colleges across the country, has the university in the top spot on its list of the best undergraduate business schools, followed immediately by the University of Southern California and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
