UT’s Haslam College of Business has risen seven places over the past two years to become 57th overall and among the 30 best public business schools in the nation, according to a Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranking released November 16. The ranking is based on surveys of employers, current students, and alumni of the college’s full-time MBA program. It also takes into account job placements and starting salaries of recent graduates.

“This year’s ranking highlights program and college strengths in employer relations and ensuring our students have outstanding career opportunities upon graduation,” said Bruce Behn, the college’s associate dean for graduate and executive education.

High rankings in specific areas, including 34th in employer perceptions and 21st in job placements nationwide, underscore the college’s standing.

Another recent ranking, in the Princeton Review’s The Best 267 Business Schools: 2018 Edition, found the college’s MBA employment rate within three months of graduation has risen to 92 percent, a 16-point increase since last year.
