Freeman jumps in latest U.S. News & World Report ranking

In its latest survey of America’s best business schools, U.S. News & World Report has ranked the Freeman School 40th on its list of the best graduate schools of business.

The ranking, which was published March 15 on usnews. com, represents a jump of 13 spots over the Freeman School’s previous ranking — the second-biggest increase of any school on the list — and is Freeman’s highest ranking in U.S. News & World Report since 2002.

With this latest ranking, for the first time in history, the Freeman School’s MBA program and undergraduate program are both ranked in the top 50 by the two leading ranking organizations, U.S. News & World Report and Bloomberg Businessweek.

U.S. News & World Report bases its rankings in part on assessments of quality from business school deans and corporate recruiters as well as several measures of student selectivity, but Freeman’s jump in this year’s ranking was driven in large part by exceptionally strong placement statistics. Of the 69 programs on the list, Freeman ranked eighth for percentage of MBA graduates employed at graduation (75 percent) and fifth for percentage of graduates employed three months after graduation (93.3 percent).
