The Financial Times 2016 Global MBA Rankings emphasize schools’ success in job placement, earnings, and faculty research—a trifecta where the UW Foster School performs among the world’s best business schools. The Foster Full-time MBA program ranked #21 in the U.S. and #49 worldwide, buoyed by the school’s 96% job placement rate. After graduation, Foster MBA alumni saw an average salary increase of 87% within three years.

Foster faculty were especially competitive in research productivity, ranking #13 in the U.S. and #16 globally for articles published in 45 top academic journals. Fourth among public universities, Foster faculty moved into the same research tier as Columbia, Stanford, and Northwestern. They were also more productive per capita than their counterparts at UCLA, University of Texas, Austin, Yale, Dartmouth, and USC.

Since 2005, the Foster School has dramatically increased its standing in The Financial Times Global MBA Rankings, moving from #93 to #49 internationally and from #56 to #21 in the United States. The Foster Executive MBA has also moved up from #32 in 2012 to #14 in the U.S.
