2022 Report Card: How Alums Grade Their B-School Experience

Which B-school was named the best in the U.S. by U.S. News once again this year? You guessed it: Wharton

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

This is the newest question on our survey, added just two years ago. We decided to add this question in addition to asking about the business degree being worth its cost in tuition. College students spend a lot of time and resources working towards a degree. Not only in the classroom but internships and co- and extra-curricular activities can dominate a college student’s time and energy. Wharton graduates scored their school the highest in this category with a 9.74. Following Wharton is Cornell with a 9.68 and Georgetown with a 9.68. Wharton’s 9.74 average is slightly down from last year when it also led the category with a 9.77. However, it’s still up from 2020, when Indiana Kelley led with an average of 9.65.

Like the question asking if alums believe their degree was worth its cost in tuition, the average among all schools has trended downwards over the past few years. This year, the average among all schools was 8.69, down from 8.74 last year and 8.88 in 2020. Still, it’s clear alumni are less frustrated with the time and resources going into a degree than the cost.
