Part-time M.B.A. program ranked among nation’s best

For a fifth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranked University of Michigan-Dearborn’s part-time M.B.A. program as one of the nation’s best.

The publication recognized UM-Dearborn’s College of Business (COB) for having the second best part-time M.B.A. program in Michigan in its “Best Graduate Schools” edition released this week.

“Most graduate students have demanding lives as they try to balance work, school and other personal obligations,” said COB Dean Raju Balakrishnan. “That’s why our part-time M.B.A. program is designed to accommodate their busy schedules. Being ranked once again among the nation’s best part-time M.B.A. programs is continued evidence of the university’s overall dedication to academic excellence.”

The publication based its rankings on five factors: average peer assessment score; average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative and verbal scores of part-time M.B.A. students entering in fall 2013; average undergraduate GPA; work experience; and percentage of the business school’s fall 2013 M.B.A. enrollment that is part time.

In January, U.S. News & World Report also recognized COB for having one of the state’s top three online graduate business programs. In a separate ranking, The Princeton Review recognized COB as a “Best Business School” for a fifth consecutive year.
