Forbes ranks Willamette University MBA as a top business school

| Print |  Email

Salem, OR – Willamette University’s MBA program has been named to Forbes magazine’s ninth biennial ranking of top business schools. Forbes ranks schools based on the return on investment experienced by graduates from the class of 2010. Willamette is the only school in Oregon to make Forbes’ 2015 list and is one of only two schools in the northwest.

Forbes surveyed over 17,000 graduates and 95 schools globally for the list. Rankings are based on return on investment and calculated based on pre- and post-MBA salaries compared to the cost of tuition. Willamette is one of just 20 ranked schools located west of the Mississippi River. Willamette MBA has previously appeared on Forbes’ “Best Business Schools” list in 2009 and 2011.

“Our Forbes ranking reinforces the quality and value a Willamette MBA delivers to our graduates,” explains Debra Ringold, Dean and JELD-WEN Professor of Free Enterprise. "We continue to fight above our weight. This ranking is a testament to the hard work of the entire Willamette MBA community--students, alumni, faculty, staff, employers, and friends--of which we should be duly proud."

The complete list of schools along with methodology appears on Forbes’ website. Willamette University features two distinct MBA program formats: an Early Career and Career Change MBA (full-time) and MBA for Professionals (evening). Classes are offered in Salem and Portland, Oregon.
