The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth placed #2 in The Economist’s annual ranking of full-time MBA programs which was released last week. This year U.S. schools dominated the ranking, primarily due to Europe’s economic woes.
The annual ranking is based on four factors The Economist identifies as the primary reasons students pursue an MBA: to open new career opportunities (weighted at 35%), for personal development and educational experience (35%), to increase salary (20%), and to build a professional network (10%).
For the second year in a row, Tuck ranked #1 in terms of professional development and educational experience. In the category of opening new career opportunities, Tuck ranked #2. And students clearly felt that the Tuck alumni had a lot to do with their success as the Tuck network was rated #1 for its effectiveness.
BusinessWeek, The Financial Times, Forbes, U.S. News & World Report, and The Economist each regularly publish a ranking of graduate business schools. In major rankings published over the past twelve years, Tuck has been #1 eight times and been in the top ten 86% of the time.
Founded in 1900, Tuck is the first graduate school of management in the country and consistently ranks among the top business schools worldwide. Tuck remains distinctive among the world's great business schools by combining human scale with global reach, rigorous coursework with experiences requiring teamwork, and valued traditions with innovation.
