U.S. News & World Report Ranks WSU among top part-time MBA programs

The School of Business Administration is featured in the 2012 Edition U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools. The report lists Wayne State among the top schools for the specialty “part-time M.B.A.” programs.

Of the 165 colleges and universities from across the country recognized for their part-time M.B.A. program, two are in Michigan. WSU’s part-time M.B.A. program placed second in the state behind University of Michigan - Ann Arbor.

Part-time M.B.A. programs play a vital role in business education, especially for working people who can’t go full time because of family or financial reasons, according to the U.S. News & World Report guidebook.

The guide says that “part-time M.B.A. rankings are based solely on a fall 2010 peer assessment survey that asked business school deans and M.B.A. program directors at each of the nation’s 295 part-time M.B.A. programs to rate the other part-time programs on a 5-point scale, from marginal (1) to outstanding (5).”

Programs were ranked based on their average peer assessment score.

The 2012 Edition U.S. News & World Report Best Graduate Schools is available on newsstands now. The rankings are also available here, but a paid subscription is required to access the complete lists.
