Evaluate how well the business program prepared you for the world of work.
As noted in the intro to this article, our decision to survey students two years after graduation was to make sure graduates have enough time out of school to evaluate the value of their education in the workplace. We found alums generally feel good about how their schools prepared them for the world of work. Out of all 82 schools, the average score on this question was 8.82.
Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce scored highest with a 9.61. At the bottom was St. John’s again with 7.39. The average for all 82 schools is 8.82. The top five schools in order are UVA’s McIntire, the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, William & Mary’s Mason School of Business, Indiana Kelley, and Notre Dame’s Mendoza.
