Bloomberg: Top 25 Business Schools of 2016


An MBA in general is expected to get you to places: the coolest internships, the best networks and the hottest jobs. Well it should, considering the income you'll lose in the years while you take up the full-time MBA program on top of how much actual attendance would cost.

Not to be pessimistic about it but the estimated cost of investing in an MBA degree could easily take you somewhere between $300,000-$400,000. So you better be prepared and pick the best school where you'd like to get your diploma from.

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the schools using the following 2 main factors:

  • Employer Survey - measures recruiter opinion on how programs train and equip their graduates.

  • Student Survey - how well-prepared graduates feel about getting back into the workforce.

Other factors include surveys from both alumni and students, job placement rates and starting salaries.
