The University of Notre Dame MBA program jumped 12 slots to earn a No. 25 ranking in the U.S. News & World Report 2013 survey of “Best Graduate Schools.” The program earned a mention by the publication as one of the “most improved” schools in the ranking for moving from 37th to 25th.
“We are very pleased with the significant improvement in the ranking,” said Edward J. Conlon, associate dean for Graduate Studies at the Mendoza College of Business. “It reflects the commitment of our team and the great support we receive from our alumni, students and friends.”
The publication noted that values-based learning and ethical leadership are the program’s hallmarks, as well as its academic rigor and flexibility. The top three graduate business schools out of the 393 ranked were Harvard, Stanford and the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton), respectively.
