WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Wake Forest University Schools of Business ranked among the top 10 of the world's business schools for the percent of Full-time MBA graduates with job offers within three months after graduation, according to The Economist ranking of the top 100 U.S and international business schools that was recently released.

Every member of the Wake Forest Full-time MBA class of 2011 had a job offer within three months of graduation.

"We work closely with each individual student in the Schools of Business to help them find what they are passionate about and show them how they can leverage those interests and skills to find a career with meaning. We want all of our graduates to have already accepted a job by the time they walk across stage to get their diploma on graduation day," said Steve Reinemund, Dean of Business.

Overall, the Wake Forest MBA program ranked 31st in the nation and among the top 50 in the world. Some key factors influencing this ranking include job offers, faculty quality and student satisfaction.

In the area of faculty quality, Wake Forest ranked 19th globally with 95 percent of faculty members having a Ph.D.

"Our faculty members are teacher-scholars who take a personal interest in the individual success of students. They should be commended for their dedication inside and outside of the classroom," said Charles Iacovou, Vice Dean of Business.

The Economist ranking of full-time MBA programs includes input from schools, students and alumni. A total of 15,550 students and graduates worldwide participated. Complete methodology and school profiles may be found online at (economist.com/whichmba).
