In recently released rankings from Forbes, the Mays Business School full-time MBA program at Texas A&M University is again ranked in the top ten among U.S. public university programs. In the 2011 rankings, the A&M program places 9th among U.S. publics, and 24th among all U.S. schools, public and private. The biennial ranking includes the top 74 programs in the U.S.

“Year after year, we are recognized for producing a significant ROI for our graduates. We attract outstanding students from around the globe and they are highly sought after for fast tracked management positions after graduation, even in the most recent tough economic times,” said Kelli Kilpatrick, director of the Mays full-time MBA program.

Return on investment to graduates is the basis of the Forbes rankings. Forbes surveyed thousands of alumni from programs around the world to find their pre-MBA salary and earnings in the first five years after graduation. They compared the post-MBA compensation with the opportunity cost of attending an MBA program (tuition, required fees, and foregone salary while in school) to arrive at the rankings. For the U.S. rankings, only schools with two-year MBA programs were included. Full coverage of the ranking is available at
