The Full-time Berkeley MBA Program ranked #7 worldwide in The Economist’s “Which MBA?” ranking, published on October 13.
A total of 100 schools were included in the ranking.
The four major categories of ranking criteria are: new career opportunities (35% weighting), personal development and educational experience (35%), increasing salary (20%) and the potential to network (10%). Surveys are sent to the business school asking for quantitative data, and to MBA students and recent graduates who are asked qualitative questions about their program.
This is one of many rankings of full-time MBA programs by the media. Earlier this year, the Full-time MBA Program was ranked #7 among US schools by U.S. News & World Report, and #5 in the US (#7 worldwide) by the Financial Times.
