The University of Notre Dame MBA program at the Mendoza College of Business rose in two significant rankings in recent weeks, climbing to No. 25 in Bloomberg Businessweek’s “Best Business Schools 2016” and to No. 24 in Poets & Quants’ “2016 Top 100 U.S. MBA Programs.”
“Moving up in the rankings is, of course, good news for the program, especially as it reflects the dedication and hard work of so many faculty and staff members,” said Mary Goss, senior director of Graduate Business Programs, which includes the Notre Dame MBA. “But on a daily basis, our focus is on educating our students to be true leaders — well-prepared for meaningful, fulfilling careers and to have a continual vision for making a difference. It may sound cliché, but it’s our people who define the program.”
On the Bloomberg Businessweek ranking, Notre Dame MBA moved up six spots from the previous survey, and earned especially high ratings by alumni. Of the 87 schools listed, Notre Dame MBA ranked No. 6.
The program rose one slot on the Poets & Quants survey from its 2015 result. On the ND MBA profile page, P&Q recognized the program’s strong alumni network and its emphasis on ethics and values, quoting a 2012 graduate, “Notre Dame has a stronger focus on ethics and doing things the right way than any other school around. The alumni network is incredible as you will always be a part of the Notre Dame family.”
