University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School is the world's oldest business school and is consistently ranked among the best. The undergraduate program, developed in 1881 in order to prepare young men to assume control of the economy, offered the first collegiate degree in business. Since then, the school has added a full-time MBA, PhD degree, and even a two-year executive MBA with a second campus, in San Francisco.
Entry into one of the world's best B-schools isn't easy, and it doesn't come cheap. At almost $50,000 per year, the MBA program is one of the most costly—but the robust salary increase Wharton grads receive make the investment worth it to most. Wharton's strongest reputation is in finance and consulting, and students consistently attract the world's best business employers. And in an MBA class of just over 2,000, recruiters have the cream of the Wharton crop to choose from.
