“The Financial Times ranking measures faculty quality, international diversity, and the perceptions and career success of our graduates.  It is highly regarded around the world and we are pleased by this recognition,” said Dean Lawrence B. Pulley.

In determining the ranking, Financial Times surveys alumni who have been out of school for three years and collects data from the school on the diversity and research components. Alumni are asked about their salaries, career development since graduation, and the likelihood of their recommendation for the school.
