AUBURN – A newly released Forbes.com special report has ranked Auburn University’s MBA program 29th among the nation’s public institutions and 64th overall. The ranking measures the best five-year “return on investment” for MBA graduates of the class of 2004.
For this year’s survey, Forbes sent out 17,000 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.
