NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- September is the month students across the country head back to school. For college seniors looking to go into the financial world after graduating, this is the last year they can bolster their academic credentials before heading to business school for an advanced degree.
Not all post graduate degree programs are created equal, however, as the U.S. News & Report annual ranking of the top business schools in the country shows.
Using weighted criteria ranging from peer and recruiter assessments, to graduate's mean salary and employment rates, U.S. News & World Report ranked 127 of the 453 business programs they surveyed between the fall of 2013 and early 2014.
