It’s a good year to be a Hoo! The University of Virginia Darden School of Business has risen into the Top 10 category in the U.S. News & World Report ranking of best business schools, claiming the No. 2 spot among public schools.  

This marks Darden’s best ranking year ever, with a jump of four spots from the previous year. The Full-Time MBA program secured a Top 10 ranking, matching its highest ever from 2016. 

We care about these rankings because it is an external affirmation that the work our students, faculty, staff and alumni do every day is visible and valued on a national level. Dean Scott Beardsley said: “Our students, faculty, staff and alumni deserve all the credit for continuing to grow a learning community that is unlike any other.”

Dean Beardsley credited the exceptional education experience provided by Darden’s faculty and staff, along with the career outcomes realized by graduates, for the school’s success.  

Darden excelled in various categories, including employment rates at graduation and three months after graduation, average starting salary and bonus, and salary by profession.
