As part of the 2012 Best B-Schools ranking, Bloomberg Businessweek asked MBAs from the Class of 2012 to tell us, via an online survey, about the full range of their business school experience, from getting in to getting a job. One section of the survey singled out specific aspects of the business program and asked the students to rate them on a scale from “poor” to “outstanding.” Over the next few weeks, we will publish the final top-10 list—the top B-schools for e-business—followed by the entire specialty MBA ranking, including each of the 82 ranked schools.

Today we look at information technology (IT). The ranking is based on student responses to the question asking them to rank their program’s coverage of information technology, an area where few schools truly excel. Points are awarded for each response—one point for “poor” through six points for “outstanding”—and then averaged for each school. The average IT score for all 82 U.S. and international schools in the ranking was 4.02. At the top of the list, Carnegie Mellon’s Tepper School of Business stands alone, posting an average score of 5.70.
