MSU's Broad business school cracks top 20

The Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University vaulted into the top 20 of American

business schools in the latest biennial rankings by Bloomberg Businessweek.

According to "The Best U.S. B-Schools of 2010," the Broad College's full-time MBA program ranks 20th

overall and seventh among public universities—the highest Businessweek ranking ever for the

"This is just another indicator of the hard work and dedication of our students, alumni, faculty, and

staff at the Broad College," says Dean Stefanie Lenway.

Student satisfaction was a major factor in the Broad College's move into the top 20. Alumni who

college A+ grades in career services and teaching. The college placed 13th in this graduate poll, one

of three elements that made up the final ranking.

Other elements of the ranking were the corporate poll, in which recruiters were asked to identify the

schools that produce the best graduates, and intellectual capital, which was based on the number of

national publications. Broad ranked 32nd and 39th, respectively, in these areas.


The graduate and recruiter polls each contributed 45 percent to the final ranking, and intellectual
