I think it all comes down to perception of the school or program whether it is ranked or not. If it comes down to a candidate from a school known for their business program versus a candidate from a school that the employer had never heard of, it certainly can make a difference. But you should hopefully find a job either way. Obviously a high ranked school is going to be more known in that field, so it can give you an edge in individual interviews, but ultimately you may end up with a good job either way.

Also, if the school is not ranked because it is truly no good at training their students, then it certainly makes a difference.
