The Mays MBA Program continues to rank among the best in the nation, according to the U.S. News & World Report‘s 2002 rankings. In the yearly rundown of the nation’s best schools, the program was named 45th among the 341 schools surveyed for the publication. For the first time ever, the college’s general management program was ranked by U.S. News, garnering the 25th spot among all schools in the category.

The rankings are based in part by information the Mays College provides the magazine, said Wendy Flynn, assistant director of the Mays MBA Program. Then, U.S. News & World Report surveys academics and recruiters to rate the schools.

“It’s nice to receive the recognition,” she said. “We are very excited to remain in the top 50 because it’s an important distinction. We are also very happy that the general management program appeared in the rankings for the first time ever.”
