The only business school guide that ranks M.B.A. programs
by their reputation in the marketplace

Unlike other business school books and surveys, The Wall Street Journal Guide to the Top Business Schools 2006 ranks M.B.A. programs solely according to what corporate recruiters–the “buyers” of management talent–say about them. Now prospective students can choose a business school based exclusively on its reputation in the real world–where it matters most.

Combining the expertise of The Wall Street Journal, the world’s most authoritative business publication, and Harris Interactive, the worldwide market research firm, this guide reveals:

·recruiters’ top-ranked national, regional, and international M.B.A. programs
·the top schools for major industries
·an honor roll of schools by academic discipline
·detailed profiles of full-time programs

Each profile of the 76 top M.B.A. programs includes information on the school’s ranking, admissions process, test scores, the industries and companies most likely to hire the school’s graduates, and graduates’ expected first-year salaries. The Wall Street Journal Guide to the Top Business Schools 2006 also covers:

·how to get hired, including the right skills, attitude, and work experience
·the debate over full-time vs. part-time degrees
·the booming executive M.B.A. market
·the scoop on online degrees
·the top schools for women and minorities
·the schools whose graduates report the highest compensation
