If you are planning to enroll in a MBA program to get ahead in a career within the tech industry, you may want to check out one of these top schools.
QS Quacquarelli Symonds, a global higher education analyst, recently released the best MBAs for seven different career specializations. This includes the best MBAs for a career in tech.
QS used three different data sources to develop these rankings: its Global Employer Survey, its Business School Survey, and publishing company Elsevier's Scopus database. Each program's overall score out of 100 is based on three metrics used to evaluate the business school's MBA program. These three metrics are career placement in the tech industry, research strength related to "management of technology and innovation," and employer reputation in the industry per QS' website.
The MBA program at MIT Sloan School of Management was named the best for a career in tech in this year's ranking, same as last year's ranking. According to QS, MIT Sloan had scores of at least 95 for the three metrics that make up the overall index: 95 in career placement, 99.4 in employer reputation, and 97 in research strength. Stanford Graduate School of Business took on the second spot, and the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkley, took on third, swapping spots from last year's ranking.
The following are the 25 best MBA programs for a career in tech, according to QS Quacquarelli Symonds. We also included the overall specialization ranking score and the share of the 2019 class that are going into this industry.
