The Full-Time MBA Program at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School ranked 22nd in Bloomberg Businessweek’s- 2012 ranking of best business schools, released today.
“The latest ranking by Bloomberg Businessweek is evidence of our commitment to ensuring student success through innovative methods of approaching business practices,” said Dr. Larry Benveniste, Dean of Goizueta Business School.
Bloomberg Businessweek ranking methodology includes evaluation of the satisfaction noted by students and corporate recruiters. The surveys, conducted every two years, polls graduating MBA students regarding their MBA experience, while corporate recruiters share their thoughts on hiring practices and efforts to employ viable candidates.
According to the 2012 survey results, Goizueta made significant strides in recruiter satisfaction, moving up eight places to number 23. The school ranked 29th in student satisfaction, 23rd in recruiter satisfaction and 22nd in intellectual capital.
“We’re pleased recruiters continue to recognize the abilities of our students. The vast majority of our 2012 class—91%—had job offers by graduation, which represented a 6% increase over last year. At three months post-graduation 98% of the class had job offers, which is a first for our school” commented Wendy Tsung, Associate Dean and Executive Director of the MBA Career Management Center (CMC). In other rankings released earlier this month by Bloomberg Businessweek, Goizueta’s MBA program ranked number one in the nation for job placement and Number 16 in highest-paid MBAs, also a first for the school.
The Full-Time MBA Program Office, headed by Associate Dean Brian Mitchell, strongly advises students to take full advantage of the school’s academic and career resources, and also welcomes student input through open communication and collaboration.
“An important hallmark of our program, and one that differentiates us from our peers, is the integration of career development activities into our curriculum,” offers Mitchell. “Goizueta is committed to not only our students’ academic success but also in assisting graduates in the accomplishment of their personal and professional goals.”
The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking adds to Goizueta’s history of national and international recognition, demonstrating the value-added benefits students and recruiters experience.
