Continued excellence: ‘U.S. News & World Report’ recognizes part-time MBA program for seventh consecutive year
The publication recognized UM-Dearborn’s College of Business (COB) for having the second best part-time MBA program in Michigan in its “Best Graduate Schools” edition released this week.
“Our part-time MBA program is designed to prepare students for the next step in their careers while accommodating the busiest of schedules,” said Raju Balakrishnan, dean of the College of Business. “We are thrilled to be recognized once again by U.S. News & World Report as it highlights our commitment to both academic excellence and student success.”
The publication based its rankings on five factors: average peer assessment score; average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative and verbal scores of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2014; average undergraduate GPA; work experience; and percentage of the business school’s fall 2015 MBA enrollment that is part time.
This marks the second time in recent months that UM-Dearborn’s part-time MBA program has been recognized. In October, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the program second in the state and 68 nationally.
