Through best-in-class academic programs and prominent faculty, supply chain management has become one of Michigan State University’s unwavering strengths. And U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Business Schools ranking, released today, reflects this lasting victory.
The Broad College of Business’ master’s programs remained at No. 1 in the supply chain/logistics specialty, marking a six-year streak at the top.
“We owe this success to the continuous improvement approach we have adopted in furthering the practical relevance of our curriculum,” Vedat Verter, McConnell Endowed Chair of Business Administration and chairperson of the Department of Supply Chain Management, said. “We strive for exposing our students in the M.S. in Supply Chain Management and the MBA SCM concentration to the latest concepts and state-of-the-art software in the field. Our close relationship with industry, via the 40+ companies on our SCM Council, is one of the ways we ensure incorporating today’s challenges in graduate courses.”
MSU and the Broad College also maintain the No. 1 spot in supply chain for undergraduate programs in U.S. News & World Report’s national rankings, now for a record 11 years. Topping it off, Spartan supply chain experts produce industry-shaping research and have ranked No. 1 on the SCM Journal List for research productivity in empirically focused journals since 2010.
In this year’s Best Business Schools ranking, the Broad College’s Full-Time MBA program reached a new high, ranking No. 15 among public universities — its best placement in five years. Overall, the program tied for No. 36 in this year’s ranking.
“Michigan State University’s ranking in the top 15 is a testament to the Broad College being considered a top-of-mind business school. This ranking is a direct result of the quality of the curriculum in our MBA program, the caliber and enthusiasm of our world-class faculty and the dedication of our staff to providing a superior student experience,” Eli and Edythe L. Broad Dean Sanjay Gupta said. “Our program not only gives students the tools to build their future and achieve success in their career but also the knowledge and skills to lead tomorrow’s business.”
U.S. News & World Report’s ranking also revealed a 100% employment rate three months after graduation for Broad Spartan MBAs — a first for the college. Employment factors make up 21% of a school’s overall rank, and the employment rates for the Class of 2021 — 74% employed at graduation, 100% employed by three months after graduation — made a significant impact.
“Our MBAs are smart, hardworking and impactful. It’s great to see their success recognized by colleagues and employers,” Cheri DeClercq, assistant dean for MBA programs, said.
