Graduate schools of business: Harvard (gasp!) no longer No. 1
Northwestern, which tied for the No. 5 spot, is the other business school in the Top 5 that offers a part-time course of study. It is also the top school for marketing. Students at the Kellogg School of Management can earn an MBA or PhD, and they can earn a joint MBA/JD or MBA and masters of engineering. There are 1,280 full-time students and 1,098 part-time students. Tuition is $51,495 for a full year, or $5,152 per credit.
The business school slipped a notch in the Bloomberg Businessweek rankings and stands at No. 4. Graduates raved about the academics but dissed the career office. Among the school’s most famous graduates: Edwin Booz and James Allen, founders of the Booz Allen Hamilton consulting firm.
