Full-Time MBA program moves into U.S. News Top 20

ATLANTA — U.S. News & World Report released its annual rankings of graduate business schools today, which includes the Full-Time and Evening MBA programs at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School.

The Full-Time MBA program moved into the Top 20 for the first time since 2013, moving up two spots from last year to rank No. 19 in the nation. The Evening program ranked 13th. Goizueta’s Full-Time and Evening programs have each ranked in the U.S. News Top 25 for more than 10 years.

“Rankings are a snapshot in time, and I’m thrilled to look at this photo and see our MBA programs among the best in the United States.” Dean Erika James said. “But we know there is more to consider. Rankings provide valuable insights, including areas we see as opportunities for improvement and strengths to maintain.”

Data from the Class of 2015 was used for the full-time ranking, which relies on metrics including GMAT scores, recruiter surveys, salary/bonus data and job and internship acceptance rate three months post graduation. Surveys are also sent to deans and directors at other business schools who are asked to rate academic quality at other accredited programs. The part-time rank is determined, in part, by reputation surveys, GMAT scores, GPAs of entering students and work experience.
