USF part-time MBA ranked 11th public program in nation

TAMPA (Oct. 20, 2015) – The University of South Florida's part-time MBA is No. 11 among public schools in the nation, continuing to rise in new rankings released by Bloomberg Businessweek.

Overall, Bloomberg Businessweek ranked USF's part-time MBA program 32nd in the nation among both private and public universities. USF's program is ranked above other prestigious business schools such as the College of William and Mary, University of Rochester, and Boston University. That is a four-spot rise from two years ago, when the program was ranked 36th in the nation.

"We are pleased to keep climbing in the Bloomberg Businessweek survey to our highest ranking ever, and to continue providing business professionals with the flexibility they need to gain a first-class business education," said Moez Limayem, dean of USF's Muma College of Business. "Many professionals in the fast-paced business world cannot take a year or two off to reach their education goals, but with our part-time MBA, they can gain the skills and knowledge they need for success. None of this would be possible without our outstanding faculty, high-caliber students, and excellent curriculum."

The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking of part-time MBA programs is based on a survey of students and recent alumni. The alumni survey took feedback about the MBA, compensation change over time, and job satisfaction into account.

The University of South Florida is a high-impact, global research university dedicated to student success, located in Tampa, Fla. The USF Muma College of Business is accredited by AACSB-International, and offers 13 graduate degree programs, including the MBA, Executive MBA, and MBA-MS in Sport & Entertainment Management.
