According to a US news release, the MBA program has more enrollments than any other type of graduate degree program in the country. Future students often focus their research exclusively on programs that award MBAs.

Each year, US News ranks business, education, engineering, law, medicine, and nursing college programs, including disciplines in each discipline. Rankings in these areas are based on two types of data: expert opinion on program excellence and statistical indicators that measure the quality of school teachers, researchers and students.

From fall 2021 to early 2022, US News collected data from 493 institutions with a US master’s-level business program accredited by AACSB International, an organization widely regarded as the gold standard for business school accreditation. I investigated.

In the 2022 edition, US News ranked MBA programs using five categories: Student Engagement, Expert Opinion, Teacher Qualifications and Training, Student Excellence, and Student Services and Technology.

“Our campus program includes a comprehensive 36-hour curriculum that enables students to acquire important business concepts and knowledge,” said Ashley McGee, director of the MBA program. In addition to this, there is a supportive MBA Graduation Committee that emphasizes professional development.

“In addition to the knowledge gained in the classroom, out-of-class networking equates to an outstanding career opportunity for the MBA.”
