Bloomberg Businessweek recognized two MBA programs at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business in its 2015 rankings.
The Professional MBA program, which is part-time, stayed in the top 50 with a No. 42 ranking and the Full-Time MBA program moved up two spots, from No. 61 to No. 59.
“These rankings are an indication of the continued and growing excellence of our business education programs,” said Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business. “Our MBA students continue to shine in both their academic and working careers.”
The rankings are based on several surveys, including input from faculty, students and employers. These new rankings follow on the heels of the Eccles School’s Executive MBA No. 22 ranking by the Financial Times.
“It is an honor to have two of our MBA programs in the top 50 nationwide,” said Brad Vierig, associate dean of MBA programs and Executive Education at the Eccles School. “Our outstanding faculty continue to provide cutting-edge education that translates directly from the classroom to the boardroom.”
The Bloomberg Businessweek rankings place the Eccles School’s Full-Time MBA at No. 9 in the West and the PMBA at No. 8 in the West and No. 1 in Utah. The Full-Time MBA also ranked No. 5 for job placement in the West.
Bloomberg Businessweek ranked 74 full-time and part-time programs in the United States this year.
