UM-Dearborn College of Business’ part-time M.B.A. again recognized as one of the nation’s best by U.S. News & World Report

March 16, 2011

DEARBORN / March 16, 2011---The University of Michigan-Dearborn College of Business’ part-time M.B.A. program has been recognized as one of the nation’s best in the 2012 rankings from U.S. News & World Report.  The program was one of only four in Michigan to receive this distinction in both the 2011 and 2012 rankings.

“We are pleased that the College of Business continues to receive national recognition for its strengths in graduate business education,” said Kim Schatzel, dean, UM-Dearborn College of Business. “These rankings remind us that our business faculty excel in their fields of expertise and that they continue to be praised for their roles as educators.”

U.S. News & World Report based the part-time M.B.A. rankings on a fall 2010 peer assessment survey that asked business school deans and M.B.A. program directors at each of the nation's 295 part-time M.B.A. programs to rate the other part-time programs. Programs were ranked based solely on their average peer assessment score.

In a separate ranking the College was also identified as a 2011 Best Business School by the publication. Last fall, the Princeton Review also recognized UM-Dearborn as a Best Business School.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s College of Business is home to several nationally recognized programs where students gain valuable hands-on experience working alongside faculty members and business professionals in a variety of areas.
