Rady School First in the Nation for Intellectual Capital in Businessweek's 2014 Full-time MBA Ranking
In November 2014, the Rady School of Management was ranked 1st in the United States in Intellectual Capital by Bloomberg Businessweek, which is a quality measure of faculty research. The school entered the Bloomberg Businessweek rankings at 51st overall in its first ranking by the publication. The Rady School's Full-Time MBA program was the only MBA program in San Diego to be ranked by Businessweek.
Bloomberg Businessweek ranks business schools based on three factors: how recruiters rate MBA hires in a survey that accounts for 45% of a school's score; how graduating MBAs judge their program in a separate survey that makes up an additional 45%; and a tally of faculty research published in journals, which makes up 10%. Intellectual capital is a measure of all articles published by faculty in 20 top business journals from 2009 to 2013.
"The Businessweek ranking demonstrates the monumental strides that the Rady School has made on the national stage in the 11 years since its inception," said Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan. "It is an acknowledgment by students of the quality academics and career development, as well as recognition by recruiters of being a top MBA program. Additionally, the school's first place ranking in intellectual capital is a direct consequence of the Rady School's successes in recruiting world class faculty."
The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking is not the first time the school has been recognized for its outstanding faculty. In 2014, the Financial Times ranked the Rady School 17th in the world for faculty research and was ranked 19th in faculty research by the Financial Times in 2013.
