Businessweek Ranking Shuffles Top FTMBA Programs

Bloomberg published its annual Businessweek Full-time MBA ranking today, ranking Berkeley Haas #11, compared to #10 last year.

Haas performed strongly in several areas, ranking #2 for the second year in the alumni survey and #5 (up from #7 last year) in the student survey.

Haas ranked #10 in starting salaries and #36 in job placement based on 90% of the FTMBA Class of 2016 accepting jobs by three months after graduation. Haas ranked #25 in the employer survey which measures how well graduates perform on the job and weighs more strongly the responses of large employers who hire greater numbers of MBAs from different schools.

The final rank is based on the following weightings:

  • 35% employer survey rank
  • 30% alumni survey rank based on a survey of the FTMBA Classes of 2009, 2010, and 2011
  • 15% student survey rank of the FTMBA Class of 2017
  • 10% salary rank based on the average base salary post MBA
  • 10% job placement rank based on job acceptances three months after graduation
