Two MBA programs at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business have been ranked among the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in their annual Best Business Schools rankings.
The Eccles School’s Full-Time MBA program advanced four spots to No. 48, placing it in the top 50 full-time MBA programs in the nation. Meanwhile, the Professional MBA program ranked No. 34, an increase of 10 spots over last year’s part-time MBA rankings.
The magazine’s 2021 rankings of on-campus MBA programs were released today, complementing the previously released top 20 ranking for the MBA Online program at the Eccles School.
This recognition for both the on-campus and online offerings at the Eccles School are validation of the effort invested into providing engaging, impact-driven graduate business education to Eccles students regardless of format. Students in the Professional MBA program have the ability to take on-campus or online courses, combining the best of both worlds.
To calculate rankings for the best on-campus MBA programs, U.S. News & World Report sent survey requests to all 477 MBA programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). A total of 364 responded. Of those, 131 were included in the rankings released this year. For this ranking, U.S. News & World Report based their results on a weighted average of peer assessment, recruiter assessment, placement success and admissions selectivity.
