  •  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.

    More than 460 graduate business students will receive degrees from Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business this year, making the Class of 2011 one of the largest in recent memory. The class celebrates its achievement at the University’s Graduate Commencement Ceremony on Friday, June 10, in the Leavey Activity Center.

    SCU’s Business School will award 427 MBAs, an increase of more than 100 candidates over last year’s class of 322. The MS in Information Systems (MSIS) program will graduate 38 students, the largest cohort to graduate since the business technology degree was introduced in 2005.

    The Santa Clara MBA program was launched in 1959 as one of the first graduate business program in the nation designed exclusively for working professionals. The School offers an Evening option, a 22-month Accelerated option, and an Executive MBA serving senior level managers and directors. The MSIS degree combines business practice and technology management for leaders in the IT sector.

    The Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University began in 1923, and was one of the first business schools in the country to receive national accreditation. Its undergraduate business, MBA, and Executive MBA programs are consistently ranked among the top in the nation. The curriculum at all levels emphasizes the leadership role of business in creating an ethical society as well as business responsibilities for social justice and sustainability in the global marketplace. The School opened its new $49 million building for undergraduate, graduate, and professional business education in Fall 2008. For more information, see www.scu.edu/business/
