Haas Ranked by WSJ
By MortazaviBlog on Sep 20, 2006
Now, The Wall Street Journal has ranked UC Berkeley's Haas Graduate School of Business as 5th in the nation.
Strangely enough, Wharton, Harvard and Yale don't even make it to the top 5 national picks. (If you cannot reach the WSJ report, you may consult the corresponding PR release from Haas.) I think Haas has a great program and one of its best attributes is the excellent array of innovative economists who are associated with the school not to mention the fact that it is housed in one of the best universities in the U.S. This is the first time the day program in the UC Berkeley graduate school of business ranks in the national top five.
In an industry ranking, recruiters from technology, telecommunications and Internet sectors have ranked Haas as #1. The WSJ has also published the complete report. (You may want to consult this summary, which The WSJ seems to be making available for free at least until it goes into archive.)
Here is a quote from the Haas PR release on the WSJ report:
The Wall Street Journal quotes recruiters applauding Haas graduates for their creative and entrepreneurial streak...
This is the sixth annual Wall Street Journal ranking. It is based on the opinions and behaviors of 4125 recruiters. Harris Interactive conducted the recruiter survey for the Wall Street Journal. Recruiter names were provided by participating business schools.
