Willamette University's MBA program touted as best in state by Poets & Quants

In its second annual ranking of MBA programs, Poets & Quants listed Willamette's MBA program as the best in Oregon. In each of the past two years, Willamette has ranked as one of the top 100 management schools in the nation.

Poets & Quants is an online community for business school prospective students. Its list is a “composite” score that takes into consideration all other national rankings and the influence these rankings have on the image and reputation of the schools listed. Some evaluating factors include employment statistics of the latest graduating class, median GPA and GMAT scores of entering students and surveys of corporate recruiters.

The Willamette MBA made high marks this past year as the only school in Oregon recognized on Forbes magazine’s list of “best business schools” and a top 25 school on the Aspen Institute’s Beyond Grey Pinstripes list.
