For the second year in a row, the Full-Time MBA program at Michigan State University’s Broad College of Business is ranked No. 1 in the U.S. and No. 2 globally for “placement success” by Financial Times.
The Broad College has ranked among the top four in this category, in which graduates measure the effectiveness of the career services they received as MBA students, since 2001.
In addition, Broad saw gains in the overall Full-Time MBA ranking, jumping to 62nd globally, up 15 spots from 77th in the 2012 rankings. The college placed 32nd among U.S. MBA programs, up from 40th last year.
“We are thrilled our alumni continue to rate the Full-Time MBA program at Broad so highly,” says Sanjay Gupta, associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs. “This ranking is a testament to our dedicated faculty and staff who provide exceptional programs and personally assist students in finding quality internships and job opportunities to achieve their career ambitions.”
The program also saw improvements in “aims achieved,” which measures the extent alumni feel they fulfilled their goals for obtaining an MBA. The college moved up to 58th globally from 65th last year, and ranks 35th among U.S. schools.
Financial Times surveys graduates three years after they complete their degree to assess the impact of the MBA on their subsequent career progression and salary growth, in addition to giving feedback on the program and career services. Other factors in the ranking include diversity, international reach of the program, and a research rank based on articles published by the college’s full-time faculty members.
The Broad College’s Full-Time MBA program provides hands-on learning in a team-focused environment. Students have direct access to distinguished faculty and opportunities to network with Spartan alumni from around the world. The college also offers a Weekend MBA program for working professionals.
