The University of Notre Dame MBA program at the Mendoza College of Business ranks No. 6 for “potential to network” among top global business schools, according to The Economist’s “Which MBA?” survey. The Notre Dame MBA program also earned a ranking of No. 3 among top U.S. schools for “extent/helpfulness of the alumni network” based on student ratings.
The results are part of The Economist’s 2013 “Which MBA?” ranking released in October, which considered a range of criteria such as salary data, opening new career opportunities, quality of education and potential to network. (The full ranking and methodology can be found here.)
The publication subsequently created a sub-ranking of the criteria “potential to network,” which is determined for each school by its scores in three areas: the ratio of registered alumni to current students (the more alumni per student, the better); the number of countries in which a school has an alumni chapter; and students’ own perceptions of the effectiveness of the school’s alumni network.
