U.S. News & World Report magazine has ranked the part-time Master of Business Administration program at Santa Clara University’s Leavey School of Business No. 41 in the nation, out of of 326 part-time M.B.A. programs, based on peer evaluations and the caliber of entering students.
In addition, the Executive MBA program was listed #15 nationally.
The information was released Monday by editors of U.S. News & World Report's “Best Graduate Schools 2013” edition.
“We’re pleased to see that the U.S. News ranking has again placed SCU among the top part-time programs in the nation,” said S. Andrew Starbird, dean of the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University. “While no rankings are without flaws, we appreciate being recognized for our innovative programs like entrepreneurship, our high-quality students, our extensive Silicon Valley connections, and the strong reputation of our faculty in areas like behavioral finance, business ethics, and international management.”
Last year, when the rankings were based solely on nominations by higher-education institutions with part-time MBA programs, SCU’s program was ranked No. 50 in the country. The Executive MBA was ranked No. 18.
