The rankings include 85 U.S. schools and 27 international schools. To determine which business schools offer the strongest education and best prepare MBAs for their careers, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 112 full-time MBA programs on three measures: a survey of student satisfaction (45 percent of the ranking); a survey of employers who hire those graduates (45 percent); and the expertise of each school’s faculty, measured by faculty research in esteemed journals (10 percent).
The biggest contributor to the Jones School's rise in the overall rankings was the positive assessment by employers who hire the school's graduates, with employers and recruiters ranking the program No. 31 this year (up from No. 43 in 2012).
