“Our Full-Time MBA has jumped 37 spots in the last two years,” said Jim Parrish, director of Full-Time and Online MBA Program at Harbert College of Business. “That improvement in ranking reflects an increase in grade point average and GMAT scores of accepted MBA candidates, as well as our graduates’ average starting salary and ability to find jobs upon completing the program.”
