US News rankings

Good news from US News for NC State's Jenkins MBA. Our full-time program was ranked #66 in the US, tied with Alabama, Oklahoma and Utah. Among public universities we placed #33. To gain some perspective there are 433 accredited business schools in the US. The US News full-time rankings are based on the evaluations of b-school deans and recruiters as well as objective information on the quality of entering students and placement outcomes. As a relatively new program, NC State's Jenkins MBA has typically done best on the objective measures.

Part-time programs were ranked for the first time and ours was ranked #70 tied with 12 other schools. These rankings were based on a single metric: deans' evaluations on a 1 to 5 scale. My job will be to make sure other deans better understand how great our program is before the next survey.
