U.S. News & World Report has released its annual ranking of business schools, and Emory University’s Goizueta Business School is again among the nation’s top programs. The 2015 ranking survey includes 2013 data for Full-Time, Evening and Executive MBA Programs on metrics around selectivity, placement and peer review. Goizueta is pleased to report that its Full Time MBA Program (Two-Year and One-Year) ranked #20 nationally, while the Part-Time/Evening MBA placed 11th nationally, raising 3 spots from its position in last year’s ranking. The Executive MBA Program ranked 17th in the nation, positioning all Goizueta Business School graduate programs within the top 20.
“Our efforts at Goizueta continue to be focused on student success – both inside and outside the classroom. We are honored to have that commitment recognized by U.S. News, and to be among the top 20 business schools in the nation,” said Vice Dean Robert Kazanjian.
The Full-Time MBA ranking uses data from the 2013 graduating class and relies on metrics such as GMAT scores, recruiter surveys, salary and bonus figures and job and internship acceptance rate three months after graduation. Goizueta again performed strong in the area of career success, raising its recruiter assessment ranking as well as recording 96% employment three months after graduation, making Goizueta #1 for employment in the nation for two years in a row.
In the Part-Time MBA program ranking, deans and directors from all accredited business schools rate the academic quality of other accredited programs through a survey process initiated in fall. For the second year in a row, Goizueta saw an increase in its part-time MBA peer assessment, a key metric in the survey that amounts to 50% of the overall score. This new ranking of 11th in the nation further solidifies the Goizueta Part-Time MBA program’s distinction as the best in the Southeast.
The Executive MBA ranking methodology relies solely on peer assessment through a survey distributed to all accredited business schools featuring an executive program. The ranking does not award an overall score, however, Goizueta remained among the top 20 programs and reported the third highest overall percentage for students with employment at graduation among the top 20 list.
