Durham, NC -Duke University's Fuqua School of Business climbed up four spots to No. 11 in Forbes magazine's annual ranking of business schools and their return on investments. Fuqua was among the 25 national schools ranked in the survey.

They measured students' compensation from the year before they entered business school, the tuition cost and their compensation upon graduating. Forbes calculated and compared the total of five years' pay with a projection of what the median student would have earned for those five years without an MBA.
