WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Wake Forest University Schools of Business continues to climb in The Economist 2011 ranking of full-time MBA programs released yesterday. Wake Forest has risen to #29 in the nation and #48 worldwide.
“This is the third year in a row that Wake Forest’s full-time MBA program has made significant strides in The Economist ranking. The positive momentum is due to the dedication and commitment of our faculty, staff, students and alumni,” said Steve Reinemund, Dean of Business at Wake Forest University.
The Economist ranking collects data from business schools and surveys students and alumni. In the category of New Career Opportunities, Wake Forest improved 18 positions due to the quality of its career services, diversity of recruiters and a strong employment rate for the full-time MBA class of 2010.
“At Wake Forest, we put a heavy emphasis on working with students to explore their passions and secure career opportunities that align with their personal interests, strengths and values,” said Guy Groff, Director of the Wake Forest University Schools of Business Career Management Center. “We are also keenly focused on building and maintaining relationships with companies and recruiters to help them solve their talent needs,” he added.
