Source: BusinessWeek surveys of MBA graduates from 1988 to 2010

How to Read the Table: The index number refers to the percentage of times a school’s career management center was rated to be among the top 20th percentile in graduate satisfaction. An index score of 50 indicates that the school made the top 20th percentile in six of the 12 biennial surveys by BusinessWeek over the past 24 years. An X mark indicates the year a school placed in the top 20th percentile.

The table also gives a clue as to which schools are on the rise or falling slightly behind. Despite their stellar historical record, the University of Michigan’s Ross School and UCLA’s Anderson School, for example, have failed to make the top 20th percentile in each of the last three surveys over a span of six years. Cornell’s Johnson School, on the other hand, has made this distinction in three of the last four BusinessWeek surveys, though it did less well in earlier years.
