The Martin J. Whitman School of Management received external validation of the upward trend among business schools with a double-digit jump in rankings for both their undergraduate and full-time MBA programs.
U.S. News & World Report ranked Whitman’s undergraduate business program 51st in the nation, up from 64th last year. U.S. News & World Report’s undergraduate business rankings are based on the judgments of deans and senior faculty at peer institutions. US News surveyed deans and senior faculty at 516 undergraduate business programs accredited by AACSB International.
Bloomberg Businessweek has it again. In their 2022-23 edition, the Whitman MBA program jumped 14 spots to No. 68 on the list as one of the best business schools. Bloomberg’s rankings are based on incoming student data (including diversity), placement success at graduation, surveys of the most recent graduating class, 2014 to 2016 MBA alumni, and recruiters. Recent graduates and alumni have evaluated Whitman based on their learning experiences, networking opportunities, and the program’s focus on entrepreneurship. Bloomberg Businessweek, with the help of its business schools, surveyed 6,422 students, 11,304 alumni and 778 employers for this year’s rankings.
“We are pleased with this latest evidence of the impact of the outstanding programmatic work Whitman has undertaken over the past few years,” said Interim Dean Alexander McKelvey. “While grades are imperfect measures, the consistent message we receive from different grades, based on a variety of data sources, is that Whitman is clearly a growing school. These accomplishments further reflect the tremendous team effort of the staff and faculty at Whitman to elevate the school to its business school peers.
