How would you judge the business program’s alumni network and connections that can help you throughout your career?

A school’s alumni network and connections might be one of the most important aspects of a program. Schools with connected alumni networks are more likely to get their students and recent graduates solid internships and first jobs. This year, 2018 graduates at Wharton rated their school’s alumni network higher than any other at 9.73. It’s an increase over last year’s winner, Notre Dame which earned 9.66. Notre Dame followed in second this year at 9.46 and Virginia’s McIntire School earned a 9.25 for third-place.

In 2019, Notre Dame also led with a 9.85. Wharton led in 2018 with a 9.66. This year’s average across all schools of 7.86, was lower than last year’s 8.05 as well as 8.17 in 2019 and 8.12 in 2018.
