BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Bloomberg Businessweek has ranked the University at Buffalo School of Management as one of the nation’s best business schools in its ranking of full-time MBA programs.
The UB School of Management was ranked No. 57 in the biennial ranking, joining 27 other schools in the ranking’s second tier, including Ohio State University, Pennsylvania State University, Purdue University and University of Rochester.
“This ranking is a reflection of the success of our efforts to enhance the quality of our academic programs and global reputation by focusing our resources on the recruitment of high-caliber students and top faculty,” said Arjang A. Assad, dean of the UB School of Management.
The rankings are based on student satisfaction (45 percent), corporate recruiter satisfaction (45 percent) and an intellectual capital rating (10 percent) based on the number of articles published by each school's faculty in 20 publications. Bloomberg Businessweek also ranks the top non-U.S. schools.
Nearly 18,000 MBA graduates from the class of 2010 at 101 schools in North America, Europe and Asia were surveyed for the ranking. Graduates evaluated their schools for teaching quality, the effectiveness of career services, and other aspects of their B-school experience.
Recruiters evaluated their top 20 schools according to the perceived quality of graduates and their company's experience with MBAs past and present. Companies could rate only schools at which they have actively recruited in recent years, on- or off-campus.
The UB School of Management is recognized for its emphasis on real-world learning, community and economic impact, and the global perspective of its faculty, students and alumni. The school also has been ranked by the Financial Times, Forbes, U.S. News & World Report and The Wall Street Journal for the quality of its programs and the return on investment it provides its graduates.
