The Economist Ranks Berkeley-Haas Full-Time MBA Program #5 in the U.S.

The Full-Time Berkeley MBA Program is #5 in the U.S. and #6 in the world in The Economist “Which MBA?” ranking released on Oct. 15.

The magazine’s 2015 global ranking for Berkeley-Haas is up one place from last year; the U.S. ranking remains the same.

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 who are asked qualitative questions about their program.

This is one of many rankings of full-time MBA programs by the media. In 2015, the school’s Full-Time MBA Program was ranked #7 among US schools by both US News and the Financial Times.
