The Rady School of Management at the University of California, San Diego was ranked 19th in faculty research in the Financial Times' Global MBA Rankings 2013.
It also ranked seventh in entrepreneurship by alumni surveyed by the Financial Times of London. Among the more than 700 Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International accredited business schools worldwide, the Financial Times selected 155 for its full-time M.B.A. ranking.
The Financial Times ranking is the first international ranking for the Rady School, which was founded in 2003 and graduated its first full-time M.B.A. class in 2007. The Rady School ranked 16th in faculty research within the United States and third within California. It also ranked third within California for entrepreneurship.
"As such a new school, to be recognized as a top institution for faculty research and entrepreneurship is an incredible milestone," said Rady School Dean Robert S. Sullivan. "The ranking is a testament that we are achieving our objective to be a premier school for innovation and entrepreneurship education, as well as for management research."
The Rady School's M.B.A. program is tailored to professionals, often having science and technology backgrounds, who have an interest in innovation and entrepreneurship. A large number of Rady students go on to establish startup ventures or work with small, entrepreneurial companies.
"Next year will be the 10th anniversary of the Rady School's founding," Sullivan said. "The Financial Times ranking is one of many achievements in our short history we will celebrate."
