The U.S. News ranking is weighted by three main measures – quality assessment (what other deans and recruiters think about the program), placement success (mean starting salaries and employment rates) and student selectivity (GMAT, undergrad GPA and acceptance rates). According to U.S. News methodology, 441 AACSB-accredited business programs were considered for this year’s ranking, which – at 44 – puts the Broad College among the top 10 percent of all accredited programs.

“Our success is due to the teamwork of our students, faculty and staff,” says Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean Stefanie Lenway. “I am very pleased with our increased ranking due to their hard work and dedication.”
