The University of Richmond Robins School of Business part-time MBA program climbed the charts in the recent U.S. News & World-Report rankings.
The Richmond MBA program ranked 33rd, moving up more than 20 positions from 59th. The rankings were released today.
“It is encouraging to see that the U.S. News ranking is beginning to reflect what our students, faculty and alumni already know – that The Richmond MBA is among the most regarded part-time programs in the country,” said Randy Raggio, director of The Richmond MBA. “A focus on continual improvement over the past few years allows us to deliver a full-time experience in a part-time program, which has bolstered our reputation and helped us to attract the best students in the market. As a result, our peer assessment, average GMAT and years of work experience all increased.”
The Richmond MBA is designed for professionals who have extensive work experience, enabling classmates to learn from each other as well as from their professors. Professionals hone their strategic thinking capabilities, develop advanced business skills and work alongside collaborative peers from a variety of industries. Most of the faculty members were once leaders in their corporate careers before becoming professors.
The rankings are based on factors including average peer assessment score; average GMAT score and GRE scores of part-time MBA students entering in the fall of 2016; average undergraduate GPA; and average number of years of work experiences.
