“We are pleased and proud of these U.S. News rankings, which are a reflection of the relevance and responsiveness of our programs for working professionals and the esteem of our peer institutions,” said Richard Phillips, dean of the Robinson College.
U.S. News bases its part-time MBA rankings on six factors: Peer assessment score, part-time student ratio, part-time students total, GMAT/GRE scores, undergraduate GPA, and work experience. In all, 299 programs met the criteria and were evaluated.
Specialty rankings for computer information systems, real estate, and data science and analytics programs are based on ratings provided by business school deans and directors of AACSB-accredited MBA programs.
Respondents ranking peer healthcare management programs (the category in which Robinson’s health administration program is included) represented 91 health care management programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Management Education. The accreditation body supplied U.S. News with the names of all programs to survey
