‘Tis the season for university rankings. Bloomberg Businessweek recently conducted a survey of 126 business schools around the globe, polling the alumni of these graduate business programs on the academic quality of the programs, innovation, reputation, and the power of the school’s alumni network. And the result of the survey are in. So which university’s graduate business school placed first for the power of the school’s alumni network? We know this question has been keeping you up at night. Wonder no more.
The Power of the Alumni Network of Stanford GSB, Harvard Business School, and Dartmouth’s Tuck
Stanford University’s Stanford Graduate School of Business placed first. Placing second was Harvard University’s Harvard Business School. We know…this is all so shocking (not!). Taking third place was Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business. Rounding out the top ten were: University of Southern California’s Marshall Business School (#4), The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania (#5), the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business (#6), the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business (#7), Cornell University’s SC Johnson College of Business (#8), the University of California – Los Angeles’ Anderson School of Management (#9), and Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management (#10).
