The Full-Time MBA program at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School continues to place well in the rankings, coming in at #14 among public universities (#35 overall), in this year’s U.S. News & World Report “Best Business Schools” ranking of graduate business schools. Last year, Mays tied for 12th among U.S. public schools (and tied 32nd overall).

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. For further information, visit the U.S. News “Best Business Schools” website.

In addition, Mays’ program ranked 1st among U.S. public schools (11th overall) for employment at three months after graduation, highlighting the program’s commitment to students’ professional development and career management, especially during tough economic times.

Mary Lea McAnally, Mays associate dean for graduate programs, said she is happy but not surprised. “We are pleased with these rankings from U.S. News & World Report. While our rank declined slightly, we continue to be included among the top programs in the U.S. I am particularly impressed that we are #1 among all public schools for jobs at the 3-month mark and our students’ average starting salary is above $100,000 for the first time. We continue to graduate highly qualified students who are valued by employers.”
