The Full-Time MBA program from Mays Business School at Texas A&M University continues to rise in the rankings, moving up two places to 12th (tied) among public universities in this year’s U.S. News & World Report “Best Business Schools” ranking of graduate business schools. Last year, the program placed 14th among public universities. Overall, the Mays program ranked 32nd among U.S. universities, which is the same result as last year’s ranking of the program.

In addition, the program ranked 4th among U.S. public schools (11th overall) for employment at three months after graduation, highlighting the program’s continued success in placing students despite tough economic conditions.

Mary Lea McAnally, Mays associate dean for graduate programs, said she finds the rankings reinforcing. “We are pleased to see the rankings from U.S. News & World Report tracking what we know to be true of our MBA program: we continue to provide relevant classes, taught by world-class faculty, to highly qualified students who are valued by employers.”

In addition, the MBA program at Mays also made the “short list” in the corresponding article, “10 M.B.A.’s With Most Financial Value at Graduation,” which lists the top 10 programs based on the relationship between the students’ starting salaries and levels of student debt, further illustrating the success of our graduates.

The U.S. News rankings are based on two types of data: expert opinions about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school’s faculty, research, and students. U.S. News surveyed thousands of academics and professionals to arrive at these rankings.
