A budding graduate business student has a bewildering array of options available when it comes to picking an MBA school. But while other considerations will likely come into play, one of the most important criteria in selecting an MBA program for any potential learner is how effective the course is at increasing their employability and preparing them to be the perfect candidate for the role of their dreams.

According to researcher Linda Weems, “A wide range of schools across the country offer MBA courses, but lists detailing the best programs available often overlook what should be a key criterion: job placement rate. We created this list to help budding business brains identify the institutions that can make a real difference to their employment prospects – and help guide their future academic choices in the process.”
