A guide to the Business Week MBA rankings

Bloomberg’s Business Week website has a wealth of information for those interested in earning an MBA but don’t know which MBA program is right for them. In particular, it offers rankings for part-time, full-time, and distance learning programs both in the U.S. as well as other countries. This article provides you with more information about this.

Bloomberg’s Business Week's webpage

When first accessing the Bloomberg Business Week webpage as you look for top ranked MBA programs, the amount of information can seem a bit overwhelming. However, after a quick look around to see the possibilities, you can put them aside in your mind and find the link that says “Business School Tools” under which it says “Rankings and Profiles”. There are other tools in that box which might come in handy depending on how much you have already decided upon, such as in which region of the country you want to pursue your tertiary education or whether you want to pursue your MBA online.

MBA program ratings by schools

By clicking on “Rankings and Profiles”, you have Bloomberg’s well-respected summary of the top schools in the country. If you are at the stage of preparing for your MBA and want to find the best undergraduate program in business, there’s a tab for that, following which is a tab under which you’ll find part-time business school programs as well as a tab for Executive Education programs for those already working in the business world. For those seeking an MBA, you can examine the top schools under tabs for part-time, full-time and distance learning programs. For both U.S and non-U.S. programs, it provides MBA ranks for the top schools, 2nd Tier schools and schools that were not ranked or not considered for ranking, as long as they provide traditional and/or online MBAs .

Additional tools and information provided

Other tools include a B-school calculator with crucial deadlines, a B-school blog where you can read other students experiences by applying to and progressing through B-school, and a comparison tool allowing you to enter search terms for areas of the country-specific schools you’re interested in learning more about these among others. The site offers a variety of other valuable information for those interested in attending an MBA program including chat rooms where you can interact with others at different stages of the process, and a primer on preparing for and taking the GMAT, (the required entrance exam for schools in the U.S. and several other countries).
