How would you rate the quality of teaching in business school?

For a lot of prospective students, this is one of the most important questions. After all, classroom instruction is kinda what you’re paying for when it comes to tuition. So which school’s faculty got the best marks this year? That would be the faculty at Wake Forest University, which earned a 9.63. Cornell and Georgetown followed Wake Forest, both earning a 9.47 score from recent grads. The 9.63 average is one of the highest we’ve seen in this category in years. Last year, Florida Southern College, led the category with a 9.50. In 2020, Boston College’s Carroll School of Business led with a 9.46.

Overall, schools averaged a score of 8.70, which is an uptick from last year’s 8.67 average, but down from all other recent years. In 2020, the overall average was 8.74. In 2019, the average was 8.82 and 8.76 in 2018.
