The full-time MBA program at the Wake Forest University Schools of Business placed among the top 50 in the United States, according to the Financial Times. Overall, Wake Forest was ranked #41 this year, up six spots from a year earlier. The Wake Forest worldwide ranking climbed to #78.

In the category of employment at three months post-graduation, the Wake Forest MBA ranked #7 in the nation, tied with Stanford and above Harvard.

“We are pleased by the positive momentum underway at the Wake Forest University Schools of Business,” said Sherry Moss, director of the full-time MBA Program and associate professor of organizational studies. “Most importantly, we are proud of the success of our alumni in securing desirable positions in this highly competitive environment and earning salaries that justify the expense of the MBA program.”

Wake Forest alumni experienced a 110% average salary increase from their pre-MBA salary, ranking Wake Forest #13 in the nation on that metric.

The school was also ranked #24 among U.S. schools for the return on investment, taking into account salaries earned by alumni three years after graduation, while subtracting tuition costs and the opportunity cost of not being in the workforce while attending the MBA program.
