MBA Alumni Rank Their Schools
In Bloomberg Businesweek‘s latest MBA alumni survey, graduates of business schools across the globe rated their alma mater in several areas. From the power of their school’s alumni network to academic quality to reputation and more, these MBAs had a lot to say.
Here are some of the highlights from the survey of 15,050 MBA alumni from 126 different business schools. We’re sharing the top ten schools in each category.
Spoiler alert: the Stanford Graduate School of Business, which also ranked as the top b-school in Bloomberg Businessweek’s latest ranking—scored highest in four of the five questions posed to MBA alumni.
Statement # 1 “My school’s alumni network has helped my build my career.”
Bloomberg says: The quality, range, and responsiveness of an alumni network can be key to whether you get hired, whom you hire, and whom you get introduced to when doing a deal.
Statement #2 “I would recommend my school to a friend because of the quality of its academic program.”
Bloomberg says: The usual suspects didn’t end up in the usual places in this question.
Statement #3 “My school’s name and prestige have been beneficial to me.”
Bloomberg says: Which school has the most powerful alumni network? The list is a who’s who of business schools dominating the Top 10.
Statement #4 “I would recommend my program to a friend who is interested in entrepreneurship.”
Bloomberg says: Palo Alto, Calif.’s most famous B-School beat out Cambridge, Mass.’s most famous. A close No. 3 was Babson, also in Massachusetts, which has always focused intensely on entrepreneurship.
Statement #5 “My education emphasized innovation and creativity.”
Bloomberg says: Of the leading 10 schools in this list, only three were in the Top 10 of Bloomberg Businessweek’s global rankings. This suggests that, from an alumni perspective, there’s a lot of quality education across the map.
