The business schools at both the University of San Diego and UC San Diego received high marks in a recent nationwide ranking by Bloomberg Businessweek.

The survey of masters of business administration programs ranked the USD program as the best in San Diego and 7th best in California.

UC San Diego’s program ranked just behind USD at 8th in California, but came in 10th nationally for entrepreneurship.

“The Rady School’s success in focusing on entrepreneurship has been measured by the establishment of over 180 operational companies founded by Rady School alumni and students that have contributed more than $2 billion to the economy,” said Dean Lisa Ordóñez.

Barbara Lougee, interim deat at the USC School of Business, noted that her school strives to provide business students with “hands-on learning, personalized career counseling and vast networking opportunities to ensure our graduates are prepared to make an impact in the business world.”

The rankings of 94 top business schools were based on data compiled from more than 9,000 students, 14,920 alumni, 900 corporate recruiters, and compensation and job-placement data from each school considered.
