Elon MBA earns high marks in US News grad ranking

Elon rises in ranking of nation's best graduate business programs.

The MBA program of Elon University's Martha and Spencer Love School of Business is ranked among the nation's finest in the 2014 ranking of part-time programs by US News & World Report. Elon's overall rank jumped to #69 from last year's #152 ranking, with a strong increase in the measurement of the program's reputation.

A total of 282 AACSB-accredited schools are ranked by US News in this year's assessment of the top part-time MBA programs.

The U.S. News part-time MBA ranking is based on five factors: average peer assessment score; the average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative and verbal scores of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2012; their average undergraduate GPA; work experience; and the percentage of the business school's fall 2012 MBA enrollment that is part time.

The Elon MBA curriculum stresses experiential learning with much of the coursework embedded in issues facing actual area firms. Classes often conduct consulting projects to learn how the discipline-based content of the courses can be applied to organizational problems. Organizational analytics are emphasized in the curriculum. Two international study trips are conducted each year.
