In its recently released 2012 full-time MBA rankings, The Economist placed Boston University School of Management 34th among all US business schools and 55th in the world.

Demonstrating the School’s continued strength in industry relationships, the School of Management placed 1st globally for diversity of recruiters who recruited graduates from the most recent class, and 15th globally for the student rating of jobs secured through a school’s career services.

The Economist ranking of full-time MBA programs was based on an initial selection of 135 leading business schools around the world who were invited to take part in a two-stage survey, which requires input from schools and students/alumni. The rankings used a weighted average of data from 2012 (50%), 2011 (30%) and 2010 (20%).

The rankings included “open new career opportunities” (35%), including assessment of career services and diversity of recruiters; “personal development/education experience” (35%) including faculty and student quality; “increase salary” (20%); and “potential to network” (10%).
