Willamette MBA earns Tier 1 mark from CEO Magazine

by Lindsay Lennon,

For the second straight year, Atkinson Graduate School of Management earns top-tier acknowledgement.

Willamette University MBA has been named one of CEO Magazine’s Tier 1 MBA programs in North America for the second year in a row.

CEO-magazine-top-tierWillamette University’s Atkinson Graduate School of Management was one of just three MBA programs in Oregon and a small handful of schools in the Pacific Northwest to receive a Tier 1 ranking.

According to the publication, which has been spotlighting the world’s best business schools since 2008, programs are ranked based on a range of weighted factors, with quality of faculty bearing the most weight (more than 30 percent), followed by international diversity, class size, accreditation, instructor-student ratio and a number of other “fact-based criteria.”

The Tier 1 ranking from CEO Magazine is one of several accolades earned by the Willamette MBA program since the start of the 2016–17 academic year, including recent recognitions and rankings from Businessweek, Princeton Review, and Poets&Quants in late 2016.

About the Program: Willamette University’s full-time Early Career and Career Change MBA program continues to thrive as the top-tier, top-ranked MBA program in Oregon. By focusing on students who are early in their professional lives or looking to shift career direction, our MBA maximizes the return on investment for alumni by providing the experience, skills and confidence that help them shape their career.
