Bloomberg BusinessWeek's research found that, despite a tough economy, 92% of the 2010 full-time MBA students at the Wake Forest University Schools of Business secured jobs within three months after graduation, placing the program in a tie with Yale University at No. 12 nationally.
"We are proud of our 2010 graduates and our Career Management Center for their focused efforts to secure jobs in this tough economy," said Dean of Business Steve Reinemund. "Our small school environment offers a highly-personalized experience for students and recruiters with one-to-one guidance, and we are honored to have earned this recognition."
Overall, Wake Forest placed in the top 50 among U.S. business schools. This news comes on the heels of Wake Forest's Full-time MBA program ranking in The Economist which ranked the school No. 33 in the nation. Wake Forest's strong employment rates, starting salaries and student satisfaction were key factors that influenced this ranking. Additionally, Princeton Review jointly with Entrepreneurship Magazine ranked Wake Forest's graduate entrepreneurship program at No. 23 in the nation.
