The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth placed No. 2 in The Economist’s annual ranking of full-time MBA programs, which was released last week. This year U.S. schools dominated the ranking.
For the second year in a row, Tuck ranked No. 1 in terms of professional development and educational experience. In the category of opening new career opportunities, Tuck ranked No. 2. And students felt that the Tuck alumni had a lot to do with their success, as the Tuck network was rated No. 1 for its effectiveness.
The annual ranking is based on four factors The Economist identifies as the primary reasons students pursue an MBA: to open new career opportunities (weighted at 35 percent), for personal development and educational experience (35 percent), to increase salary (20 percent), and to build a professional network (10 percent).
