Rady School of Managment at UC San Diego Earns “Top 100” Global Ranking from the Financial Times
Business school the only school to be ranked in San Diego
The Rady School of Management at the University of California San Diego has been ranked as one of the top 100 business schools in the world by the Financial Times. The Rady School ranked 50th in the U.S., 22nd among U.S. public institutions and 6th among the schools ranked in California. The graduate school is the only institution to achieve a ranking in San Diego.
The school’s MBA program received high marks for the quality of its faculty research, the percent of international faculty working at the school and the percent of female students.
“The Financial Times ranking demonstrates the commitment by our faculty and staff to provide our students with a quality business education that prepares them for the innovation economy,” said Rady School Dean Lisa Ordóñez.
The Financial Times methodology is based on 20 different metrics that were collected from both school-reported data and a survey of business school alumni. The two measures with the greatest impact on the ranking results are the salary figures of alumni three years after graduation, as well as the percentage increase on salary – the average difference in alumni salary before starting the MBA to now. Other criteria used in the methodology of the global ranking include the number of research articles published by business school faculty, as well as the gender and international composition of students and faculty.
The Financial Times ranking evaluates MBA programs at U.S. and international business schools. The Rady School’s unique MBA program is tailored to professionals, often having science and technology backgrounds, who have an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship. The program provides students with the inspiration, business acumen and faculty and alumni support to achieve a significant impact. A large number of Rady students go on to establish startup ventures or work with small, entrepreneurial companies.
