The NC State Jenkins MBA program made a huge leap to #29 in the US in the prestigious Bloomberg Businessweek full-time rankings, up from #54 a year ago. Harvard was #1, Duke was #8 and UNC-Chapel Hill was #17. NC State was ranked ahead of many well-established MBA programs, including Michigan State, Maryland, Vanderbilt, Ohio State and Wisconsin.
Why did NC State jump so high, so quickly? Just ask employers, which is exactly what Businessweek did. NC State ranked #20 in employer satisfaction. This reflects the "think and do" spirit our graduates bring to the workplace, especially the skills they develop in the company-sponsored projects that are a cornerstone of the program. We also did very well in terms of alumni (#25) and student (#38) satisfaction.
The part-time program also received a solid ranking at #45. This is down from two years ago, but we should be very proud to be one of just 26 schools that received top 50 recognition for both the full-time and part-time program.
Kudos to the alums, faculty, staff and students who have made the NC State Jenkins MBA such a special program. This latest ranking, along with the #9 online ranking from US News earlier this year, shows that NC State's MBA program is on the move.
