The Mays Full-Time MBA Program at Mays Business School ranked 18th overall and 4th among public schools in the “Best full-time MBA programs” rankings by Bloomberg Businessweek. The placement was up from last year’s ranking of 22nd overall and 8th among public schools.

The rankings were based on data for the class that graduated in December 2015 and from feedback from students who graduated between 2008 and 2010. Former students ranked the Mays program favorably – 13th out of 81 programs ranked. Mays also fared well in the employer and job placement categories.

Mays Dean Eli Jones said he was “thrilled and humbled” by the program’s success in the rankings. “Our mission to develop transformational leaders is important, because our graduates go on to transform organizations and the lives of others in very meaningful ways,” said the 1986 graduate of the Full-Time MBA program. “Our successes are due to the dedicated faculty and staff at Mays and the talented students we recruit to be part of the Mays experience. Of course, we’re always grateful to our Aggie network for hiring our graduates and participating in the surveys, which are key components of the rankings.”

The  unique three-semester Full-Time MBA program structure offering valuable hands-on learning opportunities and Mays’ commitment to providing competitive merit-based scholarship awards provide a high-caliber experience at an affordable cost.

The Mays program has long been considered a leader in both academics and return on investment.  Former student James Mansour said in a Bloomberg story about “The Real Cost of an MBA” that his degree helped him land a job at Delta Airlines in Atlanta.

In other recent rankings, the program placed 24th overall and 9th among U.S. public universities in the 2015 Forbes “Best Business Schools” ranking, and 31st nationally and 12th among public in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report “Best Graduate Schools” ranking.
