In its annual rankings of full-time MBA programs, the Financial Times of London has ranked Pitt’s Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business (KGSB) No. 1 in the United States and 24th internationally in the “Value for Money” category.

The ranking takes into account the average salary earned by alumni three years following graduation as well as MBA program costs, including the cost of not working professionally for the duration of the program.

Overall, the Financial Times ranked KGSB’s full-time one- and two-year MBA programs 23rd among U.S. public universities, 51st among all U.S. universities, and 84th in the world.

The Financial Times also gave KGSB faculty members high marks for scholarly productivity. It ranked the school 23rd among U.S. public universities, 40th among all U.S. universities, and 47th globally, based on faculty publications in 40 international academic and practitioner journals.
