Broad MBA graduates No. 4 “most satisfied,” says Forbes

Michigan State University’s MBA graduates are among the “most satisfied” in the nation, according to Forbes. The college was ranked No. 4—up five places from 2011—in a recently released top 10 list.

In addition, Broad MBAs were in the top 10 for their satisfaction with their MBA education (No. 3) and satisfaction with their current job (No. 6).

This ranking is based on data collected by Forbes for their biennial ranking of full-time MBA programs. The Broad College of Business ranked No. 22 overall and No. 9 among public universities in that ranking, which is based on the return on investment (ROI) that alumni experience.

The complete Forbes “Most Satisfied MBA Graduates” top 10 list comprises:

  1. Stanford
  2. UC–Berkeley
  3. Carnegie Mellon
  4. Michigan State
  5. Indiana
  6. Dartmouth
  7. Duke
  8. Rice
  9. Wisconsin
  10. Chicago

The magazine surveyed 17,000 MBA graduates across 100 different schools, receiving responses from 4,600 of them. Five years after their graduations, these members of the class of 2008 could share their perspective on the near-term outcomes of their MBA educations.

In addition to the salary data that drove October’s ROI ranking, alumni were asked to share their level of satisfaction in three areas: their MBA education, their current jobs, and their preparedness relative to other business school graduates.
