Bloomberg Businessweek ranked the Robins School of Business MBA program 21st in the country on its list of “The Best Part-Time MBA Programs.”

The Richmond MBA was the only professional MBA program in Virginia to be included in the top 30 of the rankings, which were released October 20. The program also placed 5th in the 2015 alumni survey ranking.

“We are very pleased to be recognized by Businessweek as the best part-time MBA program in Virginia again this year,” said Richard Coughlan, senior associate dean and director of The Richmond MBA. “This honor is a reflection of the dedicated work carried out by our faculty and staff every day.” 

“Only nine part-time MBA programs have been ranked in the top 30 each time since the biennial rankings were launched in 2007. To be among such great company with the MBA programs at Emory, Chicago, UCLA, Carnegie Mellon, SMU and USC is a significant accomplishment,” he added. “The true measure of quality for any educational program is the success and satisfaction of its graduates, and we are thrilled to get confirmation that these working professionals found their evening MBA program to be so valuable through the alumni survey ranking.”

Businessweek bases the part-time MBA rankings on a student survey score and alumni survey score, factoring in alumni MBA feedback, alumni compensation change overtime and alumni job satisfaction.

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. Students come from some of the best undergraduate institutions and hold managerial positions with leading firms. Professionals hone their strategic thinking capabilities, develop advanced business skills and work alongside collaborative peers in a high-energy program where students learn it tonight and apply it tomorrow.
