Darden is also ranked in the Top 15 in the categories of Compensation, Learning and Networking. Among Top 10 Schools, Darden is No. 3 in Learning and No. 6 in Networking.

The ranking results include a section on “what’s best” about each program. Quotes from Darden students and alumni include:

  • “The high engagement case method forces you to not only think about business ideas in new ways, but to also structure ideas in a format that is consumable for others. That idea of helping others understand has been very valuable.”
  • “The academic experience — intense case discussions with brilliant, diverse, yet humble students, facilitated by phenomenally talented faculty.”
  • “The case method — learning from and with such talented, intelligent and passionate individuals while constantly honing my communication skills.”

Bloomberg Businessweek’s ranking is based on survey results from recent alumni, students who graduated in the Class of 2021 and companies that recruit MBAs.
