Wall Street Journal Names UC Davis Graduate School of Management as One of the Leading MBA Programs
UC Davis MBA Program Places #34 in Regional Rankings from Wall Street Journal/Harris. Interactive Study on How Appealing Business Schools are to Corporate Recruiters

(DAVIS, CA) — The UC Davis Graduate School of Management has been named one of the top MBA programs in the nation by corporate recruiters surveyed by the Wall Street Journal. UC Davis ranks 34th, up from 44th last year, among business schools in the Wall Street Journal’s 2006 regional rankings.

According to the Wall Street Journal, regional rankings are based on how recruiters rated each school on 21 attributes, their future plans to recruit at the school, and the number of survey respondents who said they had recruited recently at the school. To qualify for any of the three rankings, a school had to receive at least 20 recruiter ratings.

The MBA rankings are based partly on recruiters’ perceptions of the schools and their graduates on 21 key attributes, including students’ leadership potential and communication skills, the quality of the faculty and curriculum, and the responsiveness of the career-services office. They also reflect “supportive behavior,” defined as the recruiters’ intention to return to a particular school and the likelihood of making job offers to its graduates during the next two years.

What opportunities, decisions, events have shaped your professional life?

My career path has been a climb across a jungle gym rather than a tangent up a corporate ladder. As a child, I used to thumb through the three-inch JCPenney catalogue, picking out the professional women who I would grow to be. I wanted to rule the world from a corner office in a suit and heels. I wanted to shed my humble origins and become Corporate Barbie.
