The Oregon MBA at the Lundquist College of Business has once again been ranked among the top business schools, according to Forbes’ biennial rating of U.S. programs.
The Forbes ranking is unique in that it evaluates schools on overall return on investment, helping prospective students answer the question “Is this MBA worth it?” Many programs across the country don’t have a positive ROI, and therefore don’t make the list at all. The Oregon MBA has made the list frequently since Forbes began these rankings in 1999.
“The Oregon MBA’s inclusion on this list is a testament to the value our program adds for graduates,” said Monica Bray, associate dean for graduate programs at the Lundquist College of Business. “It makes us even more confident that the unique approach, centered in our core values of excellence, integrity, communication, diversity, and leadership, is paving the path toward excellence for our students.”
Among the top 10 business schools on the list, nine were private schools. The Oregon MBA ranked 33rd among public schools and 12th among schools on the West Coast. Only 70 schools in total were ranked for having a positive ROI.

The recognition is another win for the Oregon MBA as it continues to gain prominence on a regional and national level for its cutting-edge model of graduate business education. The program’s emphasis on collaborative teams, experiential learning, and business learning projects, continues to prepare graduates for rewarding post-MBA opportunities.
The Oregon MBA has seen continued increased applications and enrollments over the past several years. The program has also garnered numerous recent accolades, including the #1 Green MBA (2015, 2016) designation from The Princeton Review for two consecutive years, among others.
The Forbes’ biennial rankings are based on data collected from more than 17,500 alumni about their pre- and post-MBA compensation five years after graduation. These are then compared to overall cost of attendance for the duration of the program, including tuition, fees, cost of living, and foregone wages.
