UCLA Anderson Moves Up to #11 in US News & World Report Rankings

Fully-Employed MBA Program retains #4 ranking


US News & World ReportLOS ANGELES -- U.S. News and World Report released its latest business school rankings.  UCLA Anderson's Full-Time MBA program is ranked 11th, up 5 spots from last year.  The Fully-Employed MBA Program continued its 4th place ranking, and the Executive MBA program was ranked 6th, up two spots from last year.   The Finance area was ranked 7th, Entrepreneurship 11th, Marketing 11th, and Production/Operations 11th.

U. S News and World Report measures peer and recruiter perceptions, applicant quality and selectivity metrics, and employment and compensation rates.  Each survey that ranks business schools measures different variables and uses different methodologies. This ranking, along with others conducted throughout the year, is but one indicator, among many, of a program's quality and impact.  You can read more about the U.S. News & World Report rankings and the rankings methodology at www.usnews.com.

The USNWR feature story on business schools in this rankings issue, “Business Schools Teach Environmental Studies,” references UCLA Anderson and some of our relevant curriculum.

The UCLA Anderson strategic plan is focused on continuing enhancements to our education and research programs, global initiatives, and student and alumni services.  These activities ultimately define the quality and impact of UCLA Anderson programs.  Please refer to the strategic plan, at http://www.anderson.ucla.edu/x16498.xml.
