(Davis, CA) — The Economist’s 2011 “Which MBA?” survey released October 13 ranks the UC Davis full-time MBA program among the top six in the world in two critical areas: faculty quality and the diversity of company recruiters hiring UC Davis MBA students. It is the second consecutive year UC Davis has been recognized in the top tier in these areas.

The Graduate School of Management’s faculty quality ranks No. 6 in the world. This is based on the ratio of faculty members to students, the percentage of full-time faculty members with Ph.D. degrees, and faculty rating by our students.

The School also ranks No. 4 in the world for the diversity of recruiters based on the range of industry sectors that have provided career opportunities for our graduates. This shows the breadth of interests of UC Davis MBA students and their ability to compete successfully in today’s global economy.

Overall, The Economist ranks the UC Davis full-time MBA program No. 37 in North America and No. 61 in the world—among the top 10% of all accredited MBA programs worldwide.

“We are gratified that the quality of our faculty continues to be among the best in the world, and especially pleased to be ranked No. 4 in the world in recruiter diversity,” said Dean Steven Currall.  “This is a testament to the skills of our graduates meeting the needs of employers across a broad range of industries.”

The Economist solicits input from more than 100 business schools and students/alumni, and then measures and weights the data to calculate the overall rankings. The rankings are based on various components’ importance among business students surveyed during a five-year period. Components figuring highly included career opportunities, personal development and educational experience (including faculty quality), as well as earning and networking potential.

In addition to the School’s consistent rank among the elite MBA programs in the U.S., the global reach of The Economist’s results helps raise the visibility of UC Davis among the world’s top business schools, especially in Europe and Asia.
