Businessweek ranks Willamette's MBA as among best in the country

by University Communications,

Bloomberg Businessweek’s 2014 business school rankings named Willamette’s MBA program a “top business school.”

The Willamette MBA is the only program listed in Oregon and one of only two in the Northwest. Other schools include the University of Washington, Stanford, Harvard, UCLA and UC Berkeley.

The Businessweek rankings are based on three elements – a survey of student satisfaction, a survey of employers who hire MBA graduates and the expertise of faculty. More than 10,000 students completed the survey nationwide.

“We’re delighted to be listed among an impressive group of peer institutions,” said Debra Ringold, Dean and JELD-WEN Professor of Free Enterprise. “It’s validation for the great work our faculty, students, staff and alumni do every day.”

The Willamette MBA program is one of only two MBA programs in the world to hold dual accreditation for business and public administration.
