Economist today released its annual Which MBA? 2015 global ranking of the Top 100 full-time international
MBA programs and named the University of
Virginia Darden School of Business No. 2 in the world. The ranking is the highest
in the School’s history and moves Darden up from third position last year. For
the fifth consecutive year, The Economist

“A depth of learning happens at Darden that
does not happen anywhere else,” said Dean Scott Beardsley. “It’s intensive.
It’s inspiring. It’s life changing. There really is no better place to realize
your full potential as a leader and to advance your career.”
The Economist ranking
methodology is based heavily on student and alumni experiences. In the
specialty rankings, Darden ranked globally:
the most prestigious companies in the world — from McKinsey to Goldman Sachs to
Google — recruit at Darden and hire our students,” said Peter Rodriguez,

Center is world class, and Darden alumni receive complimentary career
management assistance throughout their lives. Bolstered by a dynamic alumni
network, we aim to set the gold standard when it comes to creating career
opportunities for our graduates.”

collects data from the business schools. The team evaluates career services,
job placement, faculty and student quality and diversity, recruiter diversity,
