Want to Earn an MBA? Consider One of These Top Business Schools in Illinois

U.S. News & World Report recently released its school rankings for 2015 -- ranking universities across the United States in categories like engineering, medicine, law and business.

Five Illinois schools' graduate business programs made the Top 100. U.S. News & World Report surveyed 453 master's programs across the country, but only 127 schools responded with enough data to adequately rank them. Deans and administrators of the programs, corporate recruiters, and administrators were asked to rate the schools, and other criteria, such as the mean starting salary of program graduates, were considered.

Here are Illinois' top five business schools.

State support to some of these schools -- the public institutions -- has faltered over the years. Check out this list to find out how much state support goes to public schools.
