Great news from Business Week! The Jenkins MBA was rated in the top 30 (right at #30) in this year's Business Week rankings of part-time MBA programs. Jenkins also was ranked the 5th best program in the South.
The ranking hinges on three major components: student satisfaction, academic quality and post-graduation outcomes. Jenkins ranked 23rd in the country on post-graduation outcomes, representing the percentage of students receiving promotions and the average pay increase, where it ranked 18th. The program came in 37th in academic quality; we had high scores on student's work experience and percentage who complete the degree, whereas our GMAT average pulled us down a little bit. Students gave high marks to the caliber of their classmates and teaching quality, but were less pleased with facilities (hopefully fixed with the new RTP campus).
Business Week and US News are the two most widely respected rankings of business schools. I am pleased to see our students, faculty and staff receive the recognition they deserve.
