Super salary doesn’t equal satisfaction, Forbes reveals in its latest ranking of the most satisfied MBA graduates. While Tuck School of Business, the Wharton School, and Chicago Booth alumni typically receive paychecks in the $200,000 range,  Forbes says these graduates gave middling marks on job satisfaction. Stanford Graduate School of Business meanwhile takes the number-one spot for the third year running, and also topped Forbes‘s ROI ranking in 2013.

Forbes surveyed 17,000 grads from the Class of 2008 and heard back from 4,600 last year for its biennial b-school ranking. Their methodology considers satisfaction five years after graduation, when students have had time to reflect on their educational experience and how they compare to other MBAs in the workforce.
Ten 10 Schools with the Most Satisfied Graduates
  • Stanford Graduate School of Business
  • UC Berkeley Haas School of Business
  • Carnegie Mellon Tepper School of Business
  • Michigan State Eli Broad College of Business
  • Indiana University Kelley School of Business
  • Dartmouth Tuck School of Business
  • Duke University Fuqua School of Business
  • Rice Jones Graduate School of Business
  • Wisconsin School of Business
  • Chicago Booth School of Business

Both Stanford and second-place UC Berkeley Haas’s top employers are heavy on consulting and tech led by Google, eBay, McKinsey, BCG and Deloitte. Survey respondents appreciated how their schools helped prepare them for entrepreneurship and form global networks they will leverage throughout their careers.

This story appears in the May 5th issue of Forbes, but you can preview the MBA satisfaction rankings by following the link above.
