UC Davis Full-Time MBA Ranked Among Nation’s Best 20 Years Running

UC Davis’ Graduate School of Management’s Full-Time MBA program was ranked among the premier programs for the 20th year in a row, according to a press release from the school. U.S. News & World Report ranked the graduate business schools and released their list on March 10. UC Davis’ program came in at 48 out of 464. Part of what made UC Davis rank so high was their selectivity of applicants (top 10), their average GMAT score (688 up from 685), and their record MBA starting salary and bonus ($99,952 up from $88,301).

Their Part-Time MBA program also fared well in the ranking, coming in at 29 out of 323. This is the fourth year that the program has ranked in the top 10%. U.S. News & World Report used the following metrics to rank the schools: selectivity, quality assessment survey from recruiters and peers, and job placement success based on average salary, bonus, and employment rates. The Part-Time MBAs are judged on the following: peer assessment, average GMAT, average undergraduate GPA, work experience, and the percentage of the school’s fall 2014 enrollment that is part-time.

Dean Ann Huff Stevens was thrilled that UC Davis has managed to maintain such a prestigious program for so long. “It is always wonderful to receive national recognition for the high quality of our programs, inspired and innovative students, and the success of our new graduates. To be ranked among the best MBA programs for 20 consecutive years illustrates our commitment to a tight-knit, collaborative community where our students can work closely with each other and our internationally renowned faculty who are among the best in the world for their teaching and research productivity.” she said in a press release from the school.
