Katz moves up in MBA rankings

London's Financial Times has ranked the Katz Graduate School of Business 53rd in the world according to its 2002 evaluation of M.B.A. programs.

Katz's place within the rankings, which Financial Times started in 1998, jumped 19 places over its 2001 rank. Factoring out international schools, Katz is ranked 35th among M.B.A. programs in the United States.

The methodology used by the Financial Times is based on three areas of performance: the career progression of alumni who graduated from the program; the diversity of curricular offerings, and the quality of research produced by the school's faculty.

To determine alumni's career progression and the program's present institutional strengths, two surveys were sent out, one to the 1998 graduating class of each school and the other directly to business schools.

From these surveys data such as increase in salary, amount of publications by faculty, diversity of student and faculty population and "rate on return" for the cost of the M.B.A. were tabulated.
