10.1.2007 General, News Release, School News

Wake Forest University’s Babcock School of Management is one of the top MBA programs in the world and No. 40 among U.S.-based schools, according to The Economist’s sixth annual international ranking of MBA schools.

The rankings drivers and the ability of an MBA program to deliver them were broken down by the following percentages: new career opportunities (35 percent); personal development/educational experience (35 percent); salary increase (20 percent); and potential to network with alumni (10 percent).

Seventy-eight percent of the responses was based on a school survey and 22 percent was based on graduates surveyed from the full-time MBA class of 2007.

In order to be included in the Economist Intelligence Unit rankings, schools with full-time MBA programs had to provide a variety of data, which were collected using two web-based questionnaires – one for business schools and one for students. Some 20,000 students and graduates participated in the survey, according to the European-based publication.
