UC San Diego’s Rady School of Management Ranked 24th Nationally for Entrepreneurship by Bloomberg Businessweek


The Rady School of Management at UC San Diego has been nationally recognized for its Full-Time MBA program in the Bloomberg Businessweek “Best Business Schools.” The program received high marks for its focus on entrepreneurship, ranking 24th, and for program quality, ranking 62nd overall in the U.S., up 11 places from last year. Among public institutions, the Rady School ranked 11th in entrepreneurship and 30th overall.

“The Rady School’s top 25 ranking in entrepreneurship is particularly significant as we continue to focus on preparing students to excel in the innovation economy,” said Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan. “We are also pleased to be recognized by recruiters, students and alumni for the overall excellence of our Full-Time MBA program.”

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 124 business schools around the world, 93 in the U.S., based on self-reported employment reports and surveys sent to three key stakeholders: graduating students, relatively recent alumni, and employers.

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. Since the first MBA class graduated in 2006, 150 operational companies have been started by Rady School students and alumni, creating an over $2 billion economic impact.
