When it comes to having the most satisfied MBA graduates, Michigan State University ranks fourth nationally – and No. 1 for job satisfaction, according to Forbes.

In a recent article, the magazine ranks the 10 business schools with the most satisfied MBA grads based on a survey of thousands of graduates from the class of 2010.

MSU’s Broad College of Business came in at No. 4, behind the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and the University of Southern California’s Marshall School of Business.

Further, “Broad’s alumni posted the highest job satisfaction scores of any U.S. school,” the magazine said. “Graduates from the Broad class of 2010 earned back their MBA investment of tuition and lost salary in 3.6 years on average.”

Top hiring firms for Broad include Cummins, General Motors, Intel, Mars and Sears.

A Dec. 3, 2015 article in Forbes ranked MSU No. 1 in job satisfaction for MBA grads. Here's an excerpt.
