See what students say:


Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management is a heavyweight in the MBA universe, especially when it comes to its “areas of strength: quantitative methods, operations, finance, and economics.” Those looking to develop a “strong analytical and quantitative background” can hardly go wrong with a Krannert MBA. Best of all, at state school prices, Krannert “provides a great return on investment.” But it’s not just the school’s low tuition that lends Krannert a kinder bottom line. As one student explains, “Many of us are actually doing this program at almost no cost thanks to the number of scholarships and assistantships [on offer]. This is very unique for a top MBA program. My friends at Wharton, MIT, Tepper, etc. are paying way more!”

Krannert excels even outside its quantitatively-focused standout disciplines. Students encounter a faculty experienced “in every aspect of management, from operations and finance to marketing and HR” here. But Krannert’s academic excellence comes with high expectations. Academics are tough; there’s a “‘no BS’ atmosphere here. Here you are expected to ‘work hard, work right, and work together.’” MBAs assure us that Krannert “will push everyone to the limits, truly creating upending experiences that develop the individual along several dimensions.” This is true not merely in terms of in-class work; the program “also provides several experiential learning opportunities through [its] consulting projects and study abroad programs.” “The experiential learning projects give us good exposure to real-world work before we actually take the plunge,” students tell us.

In terms of size, Krannert is just right. The program “is small enough for each student to stand out and become a leader if they would like to,” yet “large enough and diverse enough to really learn a lot from your classmates.” Krannert keeps class sizes small, which “means that students have greater one-on-one time with professors and they remain closely knit even years after graduation.” Krannert professors “work to continue to contribute to research and stay involved in their respective fields,” yet remain “genuinely interested in helping their students and are open and available to them any time we need.”
