2017 Report Card: How Alums Grade Their Schools

Do you believe your business degree was worth its cost in time and tuition?

In a time when the cost of college tuition continues to soar along with student loan debt, this is an incredibly important question. The cost in time and money at a place of higher education isn’t cheap. And the decision on where to put that time and those resources shouldn’t be taken lightly. Of the 82 schools, the average score was an extremely positive 8.67 on our ten-point scale.

Not surprisingly, the top of this list was dominated largely by public institutions. In fact, the only private school to crack the top ten was Brigham Young University. At the top of the list was Virginia’s McIntire at 9.65, followed closely by North Carolina’s Kenan-Flagler Business School at 9.64. Rounding out the top five were Georgia Tech’s Scheller College of Business, Brigham Young University’s Marriott School, and the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School, respectively. Top publics like the University of Washington, UT-Austin, UC-Berkeley, Texas A&M, and Indiana rounded out the top ten, respectively.
