10) This Year’s Big Rankings’ Winners
The biggest winner in this year’s Bloomberg Businessweek MBA ranking? It’s the University of Florida where the full-time MBA program soared by 23 places to achieve a rank of 32nd in the U.S., way ahead of last year’s 55th place finish. But Businessweek also gave many other schools cause for celebration. All told, 13 MBA programs had year-over-year double-digit increases.
Champagne corks were popping at Dartmouth, Rochester, South Carolina, Arizona and Oklahoma, all with MBA programs that jumped by 15 or more spots in the ranking.
