Best Business Schools Hiring:
Energy Industry

It seems fitting that an MBA program in Texas, with its high concentration of energy companies and jobs, sent a large share of graduates into the energy industry: Some 16.7% of Rice University's Jones school took jobs in energy, the highest percentage among survey participants. (The school also represents the highest number of graduates, 13, in energy jobs.) Overall, energy accounted for 1.8% of all hires, ninth highest of any industry, among graduates of the schools ranked this year.
