GU’s MBA program gets national ranking

Gonzaga University’s master’s of business administration program ranked No. 58 in the most recent rankings for “part-time MBA programs” prepared by U.S. News & World Report.

In the specialty rankings, GU’s accounting program scored No. 31. Its entrepreneurship program was No. 24 (see item below on this blog for a summary of recent wins by GU students in the annual Hogan entrepreneurial award competition).

GU’s business ranking can be found at the magazine’s premium online edition, where the country’s top 200 part-time MBA programs are listed. The magazine’s print edition lists only the top 50 programs.

This is the first time GU’s MBA program was included in the ranking. It was one of four programs in Washington state rated and the only one in Eastern Washington.

A GU press release noted: “U.S. News & World Report bases its rankings on a number of quality indicators, including peer assessment scores, recruiter assessment scores, placement success, mean starting salary and bonus, and student selectivity. Only the 314 part-time programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) are considered for these rankings. According to AACSB, approximately 25 percent of MBA programs nationwide achieve this prestigious accreditation.”
