Texas MBA Ranked 17th for ROI in Forbes 2017 Ranking

Text: Texas MBA No. 17

The Texas MBA Full-Time Program landed at No. 17 in the nation and No. 6 among public schools in Forbes magazine's 10th biennial ranking of MBA programs.

The McCombs School of Business has ranked in the top 20 for seven of the past eight iterations of this ranking. It measures the MBA degree's return on investment: how alumni salary compares to the educational investment made.

Wharton climbed six ranks to take the No. 1 spot. Stanford and Harvard took second and third place, respectively, each down one rank from the 2015 ranking.

Other Texas schools among the 70 programs ranked include Texas A&M (20), Rice (32), and the University of Texas at Dallas (43).

To create this ranking, Forbes compares earnings in the first five years out of business school to the opportunity cost (forgone compensation, tuition, and required fees). The methodology adjusts for cost of living expenses and discounts earnings gains using a rate tied to money market yields. Forbes includes only two-year full-time MBA programs in its U.S. ranking. The current ranking is based on surveys sent to 17,500 MBA graduates of the class of 2012.
