How would you rate the opportunities given to you in the business program to nurture and improve your skills in business?

Once again, The College of William & Mary enjoyed high praises and results from its recent alumni. This time it comes in the category of how the business program offered opportunities to “nurture and improve” the business skills of its students. William & Mary’s Mason School scored an impressive 9.8 average among its 2016 graduates, much higher than last year’s highest score of 9.52 from graduates of Virginia’s McIntire School. A total of six schools this year scored higher than that mark.

With a total average of 8.92, all 88 schools on this list are doing a very solid job at preparing their students for the future world of work. Last year’s results gave the participating schools an average of 8.73. Exactly half (44) of this year’s participating and qualifying schools scored at least a 9.0, earning an “A” or “A+” grade. Only four schools scored lower than 8.0.
