Fortune magazine cited the Wisconsin School of Business as the best value for MBA graduates at top business schools throughout the country.

The magazine reports the average debt burden for Wisconsin Full-Time MBA Program graduates of $15,481 as significantly below some of the six-figure debt burdens of other top business schools. The debt burden listed for the Wisconsin School of Business ranked lowest among 47 schools reporting data.

A new Poets & Quants study shows that at least 13 prominent business schools have MBAs graduating with an average debt of six figures.

Besides ranking lowest in debt burden and yet producing a highly competitive average base salary of $100,653 for Wisconsin Full-Time MBA graduating students, the School is ranked #8 overall among public MBA programs by U.S. News & World Report for 2017.
