Top 20 Business Schools In The U.S. Whose Graduates Earn The Highest Starting Salaries, 2015

Top 20 Business Schools In The U.S. Whose Graduates Earn The Highest Starting Salaries, 2015

It’s not a surprise, Harvard Business School (HBS) emerged as the No. 1 business school in the U.S. whose graduates earn the highest starting salaries, according to a new league table from StartClass 2015 rankings. Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, its nearest competitor, ranked 2nd best.

UPenn’s Wharton School of Business and University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business, took third and fourth, respectively, while Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley ranked fifth.

Rounding out this year’s top ten are No. 6 MIT Sloan School of Management, No. 7 Columbia Business School, No. 8 Dartmouth College’s Tuck School of Business, No. 9 University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, and No. 10 Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University.

To compile the list, StartClass went through business school rankings of The Economist, Forbes, Business Insider, The Financial Times, Businessweek and U.S. News to create a list of best MBA programs with a weighted average of all the publications. Among the main factors in the list was average post-graduation salary.
