AUBURN – Forbes has released its biennial survey of top business schools and the Auburn University College of Business came in at 58th overall, up from 64th in 2009. Among the nation’s publicly supported business schools, Auburn ranks 27th. The ranking measures the best five-year return on investment for MBA graduates of the class of 2006.
For this year’s survey, Forbes sent out 16,000 questionnaires to graduates of master of business administration programs around the world. To determine the five-year MBA gain, Forbes compared their earnings in their first five years out of business school to costs such as tuition, required fees and foregone compensation.
