  •  Evening MBA in BusinessWeek's Top 20

    Monday, Nov. 14, 2011 1:53 PM

    The Evening MBA program at Santa Clara University is among the nation’s top 20 programs of its kind, reports Bloomberg BusinessWeek magazine in its biennial survey of specialized MBA programs. The magazine ranked the SCU School of Business at #19 in the 2011 listing; in the magazine’s 2009 report, the program was ranked at #27.

    “We are delighted that the BusinessWeek survey shows our MBA programs are gaining national recognition,” said Leavey School of Business Dean S. Andrew Starbird. “Silicon Valley employers have long recognized the collaborative outlook, strategic thinking, and principled perspectives our business graduates bring to their enterprises.” 

    Earlier this year, BusinessWeek editors surveyed new alumni of accredited MBA programs who recently received their MBA from a part-time graduate business program. Graduates were questioned about academic quality, classroom facilities, and salary increases upon graduation; the editors also factored in average entry exam scores, tuition, and average class sizes in determining the rankings. The publication conducts an annual survey of full-time MBA programs; specialized programs such as the part-time MBA are assessed every other year. The rankings appear on the Bloomberg Businessweek website, www.businessweek.com/business-schools/

    Begun in 1959, the Evening MBA in the Leavey School of Business was among the first group of master’s of business administration programs to be accredited by the Association for the Advancement of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB-International). The Executive MBA program was launched in 1999. The business school also offers a fast-track-to-completion Accelerated MBA program and a M.S. in Information Systems, developing technical and managerial skills for senior IT leaders. About 850 part-time students currently study in the Evening MBA program, while another 100 students are enrolled in other business graduate degree programs offered by the school.

  •  SCU Business Undergrad #35 in nation

    Thursday, Mar. 3, 2011 3:14 PM

    SANTA CLARA, CA March 3, 2011 Santa Clara University business undergraduate program moved up to #35 nationally in the BloombergBusinessWeek rankings released today. This is the fourth consecutive year the Leavey School of Business has appeared in the Top 50.

    The magazine surveys students and corporate recruiters annually, and gathers data on entering student GPAs, SAT scores, and median starting salaries of graduates. The editors then rank the 113 eligible schools individually on such measures as academic quality and student satisfaction.

    Dean Drew Starbird took pleasure in the high academic quality score a 19, shared with larger schools such as University of Michigan and Cornell. Teaching quality was graded A+ by our seniors, said Dean Drew Starbird. Clearly our students appreciate our teaching scholars who combine theory with practice.

    SCU students also gave the Schools facilities and services an A+, noted Jo-Anne Shibles, assistant dean of undergraduate business programs. Our students value the special programs such as the Contemplative Leadership and Sustainability Program (CLASP) and our Senior Leadership Academy that have been developed over the last few years.

    Only three other California business programs appeared in the top 50 this year: UC Berkeley (13), University of Southern California (34), and University of San Diego (36).
