The 2015 Best Business Schools' list was published during the 2nd week of March, providing an insight into how numerous programmes were ranked for all the prospective students. A number of criteria were considered to evaluate the schools. This included the average GRE and GMAT scores of the new students and their median undergraduate GPAs.
These factors are considered by the students while deciding which school they would like to pursue their studies at. Of late, another feature of school life has become the rage in the community of MBA, and that is 'How many women does the classroom contain?'
There has been a drop in the number of women pursuing an MBA. However, a few schools have been successful in attracting women to take up studies at their institutes. 10 MBA programmes have full-time female registrations of 50 per cent or greater in the school year of 2013-2014.
Furthermore, many prospective students also inspect their chances of getting a job as soon as they graduate from a particular programme. The likelihood is high at University at Albany-SUNY. The whole 2013 batch at this University was employed full-time, 3 months after they graduated.
An MBA's first job payment is also an important factor, according to prospective students. Students from a few schools had an average starting salary and bonus exceeding $137,000 for 2013 batch. However, on an average, the highest starting salary and bonus belonged to the graduate of The Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania ($141,243).
