HANOVER, N.H.—Today the Financial Times released its tenth annual ranking of full-time MBA programs. The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth placed #8 among U.S. schools and #15 worldwide.

Tuck placed #1 in the world in the category of Aims Achieved (the extent to which alumni fulfilled their goals or reasons for earning an MBA).

Data for this ranking is compiled from two main sources—the business schools and the schools' alumni who graduated three years ago. A school's rank is determined by a combination of three main factors—alumni salaries and career progression, the diversity and international reach of the school and its program, and the school's research capabilities.

For details on this ranking, please visit the Financial Times website.

The Financial Times, BusinessWeek, Forbes, U.S. News & World Report, The Economist Intelligence Unit’s Which MBA?, and The Wall Street Journal each regularly publish a ranking of graduate business schools. Tuck places second among U.S. schools when these rankings are averaged.

Founded in 1900, Tuck is the first graduate school of management in the country and consistently ranks among the top business schools worldwide. Tuck remains distinctive among the world's great business schools by combining human scale with global reach, rigorous coursework with experiences requiring teamwork, and valued traditions with innovation.
