The Business Week Full-time MBA rankings are finally out. The rankings are based on a comprehensive evaluation of 236 FT MBA programs. The top 10 in 2012 looks very similar to that of 2011. There are just two new entrants, Cornell and Darden MBA. While Darden was already on the verge of the top ten lists last year (was ranked #11), Johnson has been the biggest mover, jumping six places to #7.
Columbia and Haas MBA were knocked out of the top ten ranking this year. They are now ranked at 13th and 14th position respectively. While the Stanford Full-time MBA program has moved up to 4th. The top three (Booth, Harvard and Wharton) have held their positions for the third consecutive year. Among the three, Harvard has the highest average salary of $138,164 for the Financial Services Sector, an average that grew to $200,000, 10 to 20 years after graduating.
