ATLANTA – The part-time MBA at Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business is once again ranked among the nation’s top 25 programs in biennial rankings released today by Bloomberg Businessweek. In addition, Robinson ranks No. 11 in the U.S. among programs at public universities.
Bloomberg Businessweek bases its part-time MBA rankings on three factors: student survey rank, academic quality rank, and post-MBA outcomes. Students gave the college “As” for excellence in three categories: teaching quality, caliber of classmates, and curriculum. Survey respondents said that Robinson’s program is “best for career advancers.”
“We are extremely pleased to once again be ranked among the best business schools for working professionals in Georgia and one of the top schools in the nation, said Robinson College Dean H. Fenwick Huss. “It is a tribute to our stellar faculty, advanced curriculum, and the exceptional students who choose Robinson year-after-year as the place to go for an MBA.”
“The market for business education is increasingly competitive, so it is very gratifying to be ranked No. 25 in the nation,” said Toby McChesney, assistant dean for graduate recruiting and student services. “We are confident in the quality of our students, faculty, programs, and facilities; and this ranking serves as further validation of our success.”
The college offers its MBA for working professionals in two formats. The Professional MBA is a 24-month cohort program. The Flexible MBA is an at-your-own-pace program; students earn their degree in two to five years.
