Business Insider

The Full-time Berkeley MBA Program moved up four spots to #12 from #16 last year in a ranking of MBA programs by Business Insider, published on August 4, 2014. Among US schools only, the Berkeley MBA ranked #10.

The ranking is based on the ratings of nearly 10,000 Business Insider readers, according to Business Insider. Respondents were asked to rate the reputation of the graduates from top business schools around the world on a scale of poor to excellent (1 to 5), with excellent ratings used as a tiebreaker. Business Insider said it only included responses from those professionals who said they had experience hiring MBAs and filtered the data to obtain better geographical balance.

In a similar ranking, the Full-time MBA program ranked #3 worldwide in the Economist‘s Which MBA.
