In new rankings released by Financial Times, the Texas A&M University Full-Time MBA Program at Mays Business School is now listed among the top ten programs at public universities in the U.S. This year the program has climbed two places, moving from 11th to tied for 9th among public programs in the nation. Overall, the A&M program ranks tied for 28th in the U.S.

In the “Value for Money” category, the Texas A&M program ranks 1st in the U.S., with alumni reporting increased salaries after graduation and lower tuition costs relative to other programs. Job placement is another area of excellence: the program was ranked 6th in the nation in placement, with 89 percent of graduates employed within three months of graduation.

Globally, the program has moved up as well. This year it is ranked tied for 54th in the world, up from last year’s rank of 57th.

“For the third year in a row we have improved our standing in this ranking, thus continuing our climb to the top,” says Kelli Kilpatrick, director of the MBA program at A&M. “Our goal to be among the top ten public institutions in the United States has been achieved and is attributed to our outstanding students, top-notch faculty and undeniable return on investment. We are very pleased with this progress and remain committed to being one of the best MBA programs in the world.”

To determine its rankings, Financial Times surveyed thousands of MBA alumni from more than one hundred of the top programs in the world.
