BYU MBA in Wall Street Journal top 10 for second consecutive year

Among regional programs worldwide

The Wall Street Journal has for the second consecutive year placed the Marriott School’s MBA program in the top ten among smaller (regional) programs worldwide. The school ranked sixth in 2005 and was fifth in 2004. BYU moved up among schools listed for excellence in accountancy to fourth and retained its second place standing, behind Yale, as the best place to hire graduates with high ethical standards.

“We know these rankings can sometimes be fickle masters, but we’re pleased that our students are so well regarded by recruiters who know them well,” says Marriott School Dean Ned C. Hill. “Our students come with a unique background shaped by faithful parents and fostered by character-building experiences and leadership opportunities such as missions. Combine that with excellent faculty, a strong MBA program and the nurturing environment of BYU, and it’s no wonder organizations love our graduates.”

This is the fifth year The Wall Street Journal has evaluated MBA programs around the world. More than 3,000 recruiters who hire full-time business school graduates participated in the 2005 survey. Recruiters evaluated schools on three components. Equal weight was given to perceptions of the school and its students, the likelihood of recruiting and hiring at the school in the future, and mass appeal—the total number of participating recruiters who recruit at the school.

The top ten regional schools for 2005 are: Purdue University, Michigan State University, Ohio State University, Thunderbird, IPADE, BYU, Wake Forest University, University of Denver, Tecnologico de Monterrey and University of Miami. The top ten national schools for 2005 are: Dartmouth College; University of Michigan; Carnegie Mellon University; Northwestern University; Yale; University of Pennsylvania; University of California, Berkeley; Columbia University; University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and University of Southern California.

The list of school’s eligible for the rankings came from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and discussions with experts in the field of MBA recruiting. Only 265 schools met the Journal’s rating requirements. Of those, 76 schools were ranked.
