To evaluate quality, we combined the rankings of US News & World Report, Business Week and Forbes to arrive at a Composite Ranking below. This measure includes such factors as student satisfaction, worth of a degree five years after graduation, starting salaries-bonuses and reputation among recruiters.

The cost/year measure calculates funds available through the Yellow Ribbon Program to determine the basic cost of attending MBA school. Education costs at private MBA schools are reduced significantly by contributions they make to the Yellow Ribbon program. Although some schools are more expensive, prospective students can further reduce their costs by obtaining more financial aid through unused Yellow Ribbon funding, scholarship money or merit aid, and university endowments.

While all forms of aid should be considered upon application and factored into your decision to enroll, these levels of funding are not calculated into the education costs below.
