Goizueta program moves up

Goizueta Business School

Goizueta Business School’s Full-Time MBA Program placed 22nd in rankings by Bloomberg BusinessWeek, up one from its previous slot at 23.

The masters of business administration program ranked 22nd in student satisfaction, 31st in recruiter satisfaction and 21st in intellectual capital, according to the 2010 survey results.

The Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranking adds to Goizueta’s history of national and international recognition for its Full-Time MBA Program. 

The program ranked 27th in the nation (US News & World Report, 2010), 21st nationally (The Economist, 2010), 36th internationally (The Economist, 2010), 16th in the nation (Financial Times, 2010) and 34th in the world (Financial Times, 2010).

Bloomberg BusinessWeek surveys graduating MBA students every two years on metrics of satisfaction. This ranking also includes surveys of MBA recruiters on their hiring practices and experience with the school. The ranking also factors in an analysis of the school’s intellectual capital, largely based on journal articles published by faculty.

Says Dean Larry Benveniste, “Leadership will review valuable feedback from this ranking, and I am confident we will keep building a strong program poised for long-term success.”

Goizueta’s Full-Time MBA Class of 2010, whose data was used in the current Bloomberg BusinessWeek survey, was the first to complete a new curriculum.

Course design was built from recruiter feedback on changing dynamics in the business world and the need for students to understand increasingly complex and undefined problems.

“Our revised core curriculum is now completed by students in the first semester, allowing more opportunities to build functional depth and focus from real-world opportunities and electives,” says Robert K. Kazanjian, vice dean for programs.

Despite turbulence in the economy, three months after graduation, 93 percent of the Class of 2010 had received job offers and 100 percent of students in the Class of 2011 had received summer internships. As of Sept. 30, 95 percent of students in the Class of 2010 had full-time offers.
