Business Week Ranks C.G.S.O.M. In Survey

The Carroll Graduate School of Management is one of 61 graduate business schools spotlighted by Business Week magazine as the top MBA programs in the nation.

It marks the first time CGSOM has been selected for the magazine's annual "Best Business School" survey, the full results of which are available through Business Week 's World Wide Web site.

"Inclusion in this group is a reflection of the kinds of investments we have made and strategic actions we have taken in our program," said CGSOM Dean Hassell McClellan. "This puts us in the top 15 percent of the graduate business schools in the country. The reputation and visibility of our MBA program and the Carroll School of Management overall has been recognized."

The University of Pensylvania's Wharton School was the top-ranked graduate business program in the survey. CGSOM was listed in the magazine's "third tier," which consists of 11 schools which were not further ranked. Other third tier business schools included Boston University, the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University and Tulane University's Freeman School of Business.

Criteria used by Business Week editors in selecting the top schools included curriculum and new courses developed over the past three years, grading systems, availability of student exchange programs, placement success of graduates, and alumni involvement with the institution.
