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.
