For Nearly 800, a Free Ride on the MBA Train

A full-tuition scholarship to a top-rated MBA program might seem like a pipe dream, but for nearly 800 students this year it was anything but. What follows is a list of Bloomberg Businessweek's 20 highest-ranked business schools that awarded the most full-tuition scholarships as a portion of total enrollment. Leading the pack is Washington University in St. Louis, where more than one of five MBAs at the Olin Business School got a full-tuition deal worth nearly $100,000. In terms of sheer volume, no one topped University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, which gave away 136 full scholarships. That's not a bad deal, considering the program's full cost was around $100,389 for residents and $110,389 for nonresidents.

Methodology: Ranking is based on the percentage of students receiving full-tuition MBA scholarships in the 2012-13 academic year and is limited to the highest-ranked programs in Bloomberg Businessweek's 2012 ranking that reported the necessary data. Enrollment is for the school's full-time MBA program. Program costs include in-state tuition and required fees for the entire program. Data is self-reported by schools.
