Business college climbs to 36th in survey of nation’s top full-time M.B.A. programs

The full-time M.B.A. program at the Terry College of Business is ranked 36th nationally and 15th among public business schools by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. It is Terry’s best-ever numeric ranking in BusinessWeek’s biennial survey of the top graduate programs in business.

Strongly positive survey responses from corporate recruiters propelled Terry’s climb in the 2010 ranking. BusinessWeek’s corporate poll comprises 45 percent of a business school’s total score. Recruiters were asked in a survey to rate the top 20 programs based on the perceived quality of graduates and their company’s experience with previous and recent M.B.A. hires. Terry ranked 10th nationally in the corporate poll; the only public business school rated higher was the University of Michigan.

“During the economic downturn and in the recovery, we have been committing more resources and attention to the early career successes of our graduates,” said Robert Sumichrast, dean of the Terry College. “That has included expanding the staff in the Career Management Center, and their hard work on behalf of M.B.A. students is paying off.”
