For the third consecutive year, the Mays MBA Program has been ranked among the 100 best in the world by the London Financial Times, the pre-eminent worldwide business publication. This ranking places Mays MBA program in the top 5 percent of the approximately 2,000 MBA programs worldwide. The Mays program ranks 69th overall, up 13 places from last year. Of the 100 ranked schools, 56 are located in the United States. U.S. programs typically dominate the top 10, such as the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Harvard Business School and Stanford University. “Our increase in rankings reflects the quality of our students and faculty,” says Dean Jerry Strawser. “This ranking places us solidly among the top 20 public business schools and continues to indicate the high value of a Mays MBA, as we were ranked second among all U.S. schools in ‘value for the money’ behind only Brigham Young University.”The Financial Times evaluation, in its fifth year, conducts two surveys, one of institutions offering graduate business degrees and the other of students who graduated from the respective schools’ programs three years ago. The surveys are designed to gauge career progression as accrued from the MBA, including salary, salary increments and international mobility. It also includes institutional diversity, including number of women and international students; and quality of the schools’ research, including number of journal publications by faculty and rating of doctoral graduates for programs that produce them
