Top MBA Prospect List is Full of Surprises: MBAs account for 25% of all Selling

   


March 10th, 2017
Executives with MBA degrees capitalized on opportunities to trim their stock holdings throughout 2016, raising more than $10 billion in the process. According to full year reporting on J3 Donor Watch's Prospect Research List, MBA selling accounted for nearly 25% of all executive stock sales in the US during 2016.

Alumni from New York University's Stern School and the College of William and Mary's Mason School were notable sellers in 2016, propelling their schools to the #2 and #7 rankings, respectively.

 

Stern fell just short of the top spot, which was once again claimed by Harvard Business School's alumni. Rounding out the top 5 MBA schools are UPenn's Wharton School, Stanford Graduate School of Business and Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management.

Somewhat surprising schools that cracked the top 30 rankings include: Case Western Reserve University,
Drexel University, Babson College, Thunderbird School of Global Management and University of Rhode Island, as well as several private Jesuit schools: Xavier University, Santa Clara University and Providence College.
