March 12, 2019

The University of Richmond’s Richard S. Reynolds Graduate School of Business climbed the charts in the recent U.S. News & World Report rankings.

The Richmond MBA program ranked 35th, moving up more than seven positions from last year’s 42nd position. The rankings were released today.

“Our quest is to be one of the best MBA programs in the country – regardless of format,” said Randy Raggio, director of The Richmond MBA. “This ranking is a reflection of our focus on continual improvement and meaningful connections with the industry. As more people recognize The Richmond MBA as a full MBA that students can pursue at their own pace, they will understand that we offer world-class academics with extensive professional development opportunities. I am thankful to all of our students, alumni, faculty, corporate partners, and staff who work so hard to make the program a great success.” 

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 quantitative and verbal scores of part-time MBA students entering in the fall of 2018; average undergraduate GPA; and number of years of work experience.
