B-School Rankings & the Value of Your Degree

Jim Waite
Director of Alumni and Constituent Relations

Our alumni are our strongest ambassadors.

You are proof of the power of the Katz education. What you say, and do, and think is critical to our success.

One of the best ways you can help is to participate in alumni ranking surveys.

As a top business school, Katz participates in the annual business school rankings of Bloomberg Businessweek, U.S. News & World Report, The Economist, Forbes, and Financial Times. Alumni ratings are a huge factor in the rankings, and help us to compete against other business schools.

We recently held an online talk called “Alumni Rankings and the Value of Your Degree,” hosted by Dean Arjang A. Assad and Assistant Dean of MBA and Executive Programs Bill Valenta.

If you have a few minutes, I encourage you to check out the short podcast. It’s a great way to learn more about why the rankings matter and what you can do to help.

We hope that the next time you receive a rankings survey — or receive an email from us about an upcoming survey – that you take a few minutes of your time and participate in the survey.

Of course, there are endless other ways that you can increase your engagement with Katz. Everything from networking with current students, to judging a case competition, to helping our graduates secure jobs or internships has a big impact on our future success.

Please contact me directly at jpwaite@katz.pitt.edu if you’d like to discuss ways to get more involved.

Thanks – and Hail to Pitt!
