BusinessWeek Ranks Ross No. 5

10/12/2006 --

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—BusinessWeek has once again ranked the MBA program at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business among the top graduate business programs in the nation.

The Ross School comes in at No. 5 this year, joining Harvard, Wharton and Kellogg as the only four schools to crack the top eight all 10 times that BusinessWeek has conducted its biennial rankings since 1988.

"We strive to be the best at what we do,” said Ross School Dean Robert J. Dolan. “Recently, the Wall Street Journal survey, which reflects the view of hiring companies who see our graduates at work every day, ranked us number one. It's gratifying once again to be ranked among the best business schools by BusinessWeek, as well.”

In addition to its overall No. 5 ranking, the Ross School also rated highly in the specialty areas of marketing, finance and general management.

BusinessWeek's rankings are based on surveys of MBA alumni from the classes of 2006, 2004 and 2002 (45 percent of a school’s score), recruiter opinions (45 percent) and number of faculty academic journal publications (10 percent). For this year's survey, roughly 9,000 of 16,000 graduates surveyed responded, and more than 200 of 426 recruiters surveyed responded.
