Haas Ranks #5 in Wall Street Journal
 
The Haas School ranked #5 in The Wall Street Journal's national ranking of full-time MBA programs published today, September 20, 2006.
 
This is the first time that a UC full-time MBA program has ranked in the top five of the major rankings. Haas ranked #7 in 2005.
 
The Wall Street Journal bases its ranking entirely on a survey of corporate recruiters.

In addition to the national ranking, recruiters placed Haas #11 in the international ranking, which reflects US and international schools' global reach in job placement. In a ranking by industry, recruiters from the technology, telecommunications, and Internet sectors ranked Haas #1.

Haas placed in the top ten in several academic disciplines.
 
#2 in social responsibility
#3 in entrepreneurship
#4 in information technology
#9 in international business
#10 in marketing
 
Recruiters also voted Haas the second most undervalued school (tied with Carnegie-Mellon University), and the ninth best for CEO material. They named Haas the third best school for hiring women, the fifth best school for minorities, and the fifth best for hiring graduates with strong ethical standards.

The Wall Street Journal quotes recruiters applauding Haas graduates for their creative and entrepreneurial streak. Devan Cross, a survey respondent and special-operations general manager for Pulte Homes Inc., was quoted saying: "Students at Haas are among the most talented and capable of any M.B.A. program. They are enthusiastic about making a real difference in their careers, particularly if they can do it in a team-oriented fashion rather than in a cutthroat situation. The latter does not suit the typical Haas student."

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.
