Our sixth annual ranking of the 50 best business schools in the world evaluated MBA programs based on reputation, average starting salary after graduation, job-placement rate within three months of graduation, average GMAT score, and tuition and fees. (Read our full methodology here.)

Because business school is such a hefty investment, the ability to get a job soon after graduating is an important factor in choosing where to go.

To come up with our list of the 20 top business schools for getting a job right away, we broke out the schools by job-placement rate. Some schools that ranked highly on our main list didn’t make this ranking because of lower job-placement figures, such as Harvard (91%) and Stanford (86%).

It’s worth noting though that many students at these schools decide to start their own businesses — an employment result that schools don’t factor into their overall job-placement statistic.
