UC San Diego’s Rady School of Management Ranked 10th in the U.S. for Entrepreneurship by Bloomberg Businessweek


SAN DIEGO – The Rady School of Management at the University of California San Diego has been nationally recognized for its Full-Time MBA program in the 2019-20 Bloomberg Businessweek “Best Business Schools.” The program ranked in the top 10 for entrepreneurship and 60th overall in the U.S. Among public institutions, the Rady School ranked 7th in entrepreneurship and 29th overall.

Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 94 business schools 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 ranking is based on data compiled from more than 9,000 students, 14,920 alumni, 900 corporate recruiters, and compensation and job-placement data from each school. In addition to the overall ranking, schools are separately ranked on four component indexes — compensation, networking, learning, and entrepreneurship.

“The Rady School’s success in focusing on entrepreneurship has been measured by the establishment of over 180 operational companies founded by Rady School alumni and students that have contributed more than $2 billion to the economy,” said Rady School Dean Lisa Ordóñez. “Achieving a top 10 entrepreneurship ranking by Bloomberg Businessweek validates the quality of our program and demonstrates that our students and alumni value their experience at Rady.”

The Rady School’s unique MBA program provides students with the inspiration, business acumen, faculty support and alumni connections to achieve a significant impact. The Rady School’s small class size and focus on collaboration encourages a close-knit community where students can push boundaries within a supportive environment. With strong ties to the science and technology communities of San Diego, the Rady School provides students with numerous opportunities to become engaged with the innovation community of San Diego. A large number of Rady students go on to establish startup ventures, work with entrepreneurial companies, or innovate within established companies.
