Rankings


The degree programs offered by the Warrington College of Business are sanctioned by one of the highest authorities in business education accreditation: AACSB International – The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.While AACSB accreditation evaluates all degree programs offered by an institution, many prospective students look to rankings as a source of information in evaluating schools. Businessweek first ranked full-time MBA programs in 1988; today, almost every major business magazine publishes rankings. To fill a niche in the marketplace and, ultimately, sell more publications, each ranking takes a slightly different approach to its calculations, focusing on different aspects of business education. And although they are highly visible representations of a program’s reputation, media rankings can also be a source of confusion. We suggest that prospective students visit the AACSB International website for help in using the rankings in the most effective and responsible manner.
