The Full-Time MBA program at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School improved its standing over last year in the latest U.S. News & World Report (2016) “Best Business Schools” rankings of graduate business schools. Among public universities Mays ranked in the top 10, tying for 9th place with the University of Minnesota. In a three-way tie, Mays is 27th overall in the U.S., again with the University of Minnesota and Vanderbilt.

Mary Lea McAnally, Mays associate dean for graduate programs, said the rankings are a testament to the value employers place on our graduates. “Our statistics on employment three months after graduation are the second strongest among public universities, and fourth in the nation,” she stated. “This speaks to the heart of students’ goals in seeking an MBA. I am pleased our program is recognized for success in employment outcomes.”

The U.S. News rankings are based on three types of data: quality assessment from dean and director surveys, statistical indicators that measure employment salary and placement success, and student selectivity. U.S. News surveyed all of the accredited AACSB business schools (464) and thousands of academics and professionals to arrive at these rankings.
