BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Bloomberg Businessweek has again 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, and had the sixth-lowest program cost of all the ranked
"With more than 600 accredited MBA programs considered, we are
pleased to be in this elite group," said Arjang A. Assad, dean of
the UB School of Management. "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."
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.
More than 10,400 MBA graduates from the class of 2012 at 114
schools in North America, Europe and Asia were surveyed. They
evaluated their schools for teaching quality, the effectiveness of
career services and other aspects of their B-school experience.
A total of 206 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.
Results from both the student and employer surveys were then
combined with the 2010 and 2008 rankings, creating a weighted
average with 2012 counting as 50 percent and the other two years
counting as 25 percent each.
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.
