The Terry College of Business has been ranked a top 5 “value for the money” among U.S. business schools by the Financial Times of London, which released its 2008 Global M.B.A. ranking recently.
Overall, the full-time Terry M.B.A. program moved up in the Times ranking and is again ranked a top 50 U.S. business school.
The Terry College is ranked the 46th best U.S. business school, up from 50th last year, and 80th in the world, up from 83rd.
The Terry M.B.A. was judged by the paper to have the third best “value for the money” of any U.S. business school. The Times measured value by calculating the salary earned by alumni three years after graduation and comparing it against the overall cost to enroll, including tuition and fees and the “opportunity cost” of not working for the duration of the full-time program.
Terry College also was judged to be in the top 20 nationally for its “doctoral rank,” which the Times measured as the number of doctoral graduates produced by a business school in the past three years, with additional weight given to Ph.D. graduates who are hired into faculty positions at another top 50 business school.
