Part-time MBA tops state in Bloomberg rankings


USF’s part-time MBA program was ranked first of Florida state universities, No. 16 of public universities and No. 36 of public and private universities by Bloomberg Businessweek last Thursday.

The ranking is based on a survey of recent graduates, an academic quality score “that combines six school-reported data points including average GMAT scores, class sizes, and completion rates” and post-MBA outcomes, which are measured by the “percentage of student respondents from each school who say their part-time MBA program was ‘completely’ responsible for helping them achieve their career goals,” according to a press release from the USF College of Business.

“Many professionals in the fast-paced business world cannot take a year or two off to reach their education goals,” College of Business Dean Moez Limayem said in the press release. “With our part-time MBA, we are helping businesspeople gain the skills and knowledge to succeed, on their own schedule.”
