Survey ranks University
B-School sixth in nation

BY ALEX GORDON
The latest rankings are in: the
Wolverine basketball team is No. 2,
the football team is holding steady at
No. 11, and the School of Business
Administration's MBA program
moved up to No. 6.
The cover story of the Nov. 28
issue of Business Week magazine
ranked the nation's top business
schools, putting Northwestern first,
followed by Harvard, Dartmouth,
Pennsylvania's Wharton, and Cor-
nell.
The results were based on two
extensive surveys, one of 1988
graduates from top-rated business
schools and the other of major cor-
porate recruiters.
Although ranked sixth overall,
Michigan's minority enrollment
figures topped the list. Twenty-five

percent of the entering MBA stu-
dents at Michigan are minorities.
Business School Dean Gilbert
Whitaker said the large percentage
was the result of an eight- or nine-
year commitment to increasing mi-
nority enrollment.
"We worked hard to get there,"
said Whitaker. "I'm glad to see it
recognized."
The sixth-place ranking was a
combination of a fifth-place corpo-
rate ranking and a 12th-place gradu-
ate ranking. About 21 percent of
Michigan's 1988 MBA graduates re-
sponded to the survey.
Graduates were asked to respond
to 35 questions, ranging from
"Assess the worth in terms of time
and money of your MBA" to "What
percentage of your classmates would
you want for friends." Columbia

University received the poorest score
in the latter question.
In addition, the survey provided a
section for comments. Several
Michigan graduates used the section
to criticize the school's Executive
Education program.
"The Executive program always
takes the best people and dilutes the
quality of the MBA program," one
graduate wrote.
Whitaker disagreed, saying the
executive program provides money
for improvements and strengthens
teaching because "faculty get more
contact with bright practitioners."
One student joked his MBA pro-
vided him "20 Bs for 50 Gs."
John Byrne, Business Week
management editor and the article's
author, said this survey was more
valuable than past ones.
