UTA MBA program makes mark in U.S. News rankings

🕐 2 min read

The University of Texas at Arlington College of Business MBA program ranked No. 82 among 296 programs evaluated in the U.S. News & World Report rankings, the first time the school’s MBA program has been ranked.

The UTA MBA is offered primarily in the evenings, both on campus and in downtown Fort Worth and is ranked under the reports list of best part-time MBA programs.

“When I arrived at UTA three years ago, I felt that our program was as strong as schools in the top 100 overall, and the top 50 among public institutions, said Dean Rachel Croson. “Being ranked appropriately was an important metric for the college’s strategic plan,”

Croson said that the program is structured to give graduate students the skills they need to advance from contributing to a functional area within an organization to a leadership position.

The U.S. News MBA ranking is based on five factors:

• Average peer assessment score (50 percent of the school’s overall score)

• Average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative and verbal scores of MBA students entering in fall 2015 (15 percent)

• Average undergraduate GPA of MBA students entering in fall 2015 (5 percent)

• Work experience of MBA students entering in fall 2015 (15 percent)

• Percentage of the college’s fall 2015 MBA enrollment that is part time (15 percent)

To be eligible for the ranking, a program needed to be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and have at least 20 students enrolled part time in fall 2015; 296 MBA programs nationwide met those criteria.

Other Texas schools on the list include:

No. 7: University of Texas in Austin

No. 24: Rice University

No. 26: University of Texas at Dallas

No. 30: Texas A&M University

No. 43: University of Houston

No. 51: Southern Methodist University

No. 82: University of Texas at Arlington

No. 93: Texas Christian University

No. 148: Texas State University

No. 191: Sam Houston State

No. 197: University of Dallas
