The Broad College Full-Time MBA program ranked No. 65 overall and No. 29 among U.S. schools in the Financial Times 2016 Global MBA Ranking, released January 25. The ranking reviews full-time MBA programs around the world.
Broad’s MBA program ranked No. 11 among U.S. public programs for the third straight year. This continues the trend of being among the top 20 public institutions nationwide in every major ranking of full-time MBA programs.
In the “placement success” category, the Broad MBA was among the top 15 programs globally for the fifth straight year.
The program improved its showing in the “alumni recommend rank” from No. 52 last year to No. 46 overall—and No. 28 among U.S. institutions. The calculation looks at the number of surveyed alumni to list their alma mater among the top three schools from which they would recommend recruiting employees.
“We are very pleased to see our graduates succeeding and looking to recruit other Spartans,” said Glenn Omura, associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs. “We continue to enhance the MBA experience to best prepare our students for the professional careers.”
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, the international reach of the program, and the number of research articles published by the college’s full-time faculty members.
