Bloomberg Businessweek recently released its 2014 biennial ranking of “The Best Business Schools,” placing the Broad College’s Full-Time MBA program at No. 33 overall and No. 11 among public universities. This is an increase of three places over the last ranking (No. 36 and No. 14, respectively) and a continuation of the college’s trend of being among the top 15 public institutions nationwide in every major ranking of full-time MBA programs.
Among the measures included in this ranking, Broad’s rank for student satisfaction was up seven places (from No. 33 to No. 26), making MSU the No. 9 public university on this measure.
In its ranking coverage, Businessweek also named Broad No. 6 in average one-year ROI on the MBA, at just over 40%.
“All of us at the Broad College are delighted at this recognition of the strength of the program, the outstanding preparation graduates receive, and the contributions of our faculty,” said Acting Dean Sanjay Gupta. “Accomplishments like these are not possible without the hard work and dedication of many, especially the MBA program office staff and the faculty teaching in the program, who deserve our sincere appreciation.”
“As we celebrate, we continue to work to build on our momentum and ensure that all Broad graduates are ready for the emerging challenges of the global business world—ready to make business happen,” said Dean Gupta.
The ranking was based in large part on a survey of student satisfaction and on a survey of recruiter satisfaction with graduates. Faculty expertise, as measured by publication in a set of 20 business journals, was also considered.
