U.S. News ranks W. P. Carey School in Top 30

U.S. News & World Report releases its prestigious annual list of the “Best Graduate Schools” in the country today. For the eighth year in a row, the W. P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University ranks among the nation’s Top 30 full-time MBA programs.

“We strive for consistent excellence at the W. P. Carey School of Business, and we’re happy that U.S. News & World Report repeatedly recognizes us for high quality,” says the school’s dean, Amy Hillman. “We appreciate all of the hard work from our faculty, staff and students.

On the new rankings lists, the W. P. Carey School ranks No. 30 for full-time MBA programs, the best ranking for any Arizona school. The program is among the three smallest in the entire Top 30, offering a more personal feel. The out-of-state tuition rate is among the three least expensive in the Top 30.

On the part-time MBA programs list, the W. P. Carey School’s evening MBA program ranks No. 27, again the best ranking for any Arizona school. On the “Specialties” lists, the renowned supply chain management program ranks both No. 3 in the supply chain/logistics field and No. 17 for production/operations. The information systems program ranks No. 12 in its category. The school also ranks No. 22 for entrepreneurship.

The new rankings are largely based on the positive reputation of schools among corporate recruiters — who offer students jobs — and among top administrators from peer business schools in the know. The publication also considers statistics that measure the quality of a school’s students and employment outcomes.

Earlier this year, U.S. News & World Report ranked the school’s online graduate business programs No. 3 in the country and its online MBA program No. 4 nationwide.

“The W. P. Carey School of Business offers the same renowned faculty members and degrees in its online programs as it does in its highly ranked on-campus programs,” says Stacey Whitecotton, senior associate dean for W. P. Carey School of Business graduate programs. “U.S. News & World Reporthas honored us among the best since the publication began ranking online programs.”

Other recent high rankings for the W. P. Carey School of Business:

  • U.S. News & World Report ranks the school’s undergraduate business program No. 29 in the nation.
  • Britain’s Financial Times ranks the school’s China-based executive MBA program No. 29 worldwide.
  • The University of Texas at Dallas ranks the W. P. Carey School Top 25 in the world for business-school research productivity.
  • The Center for World-Class Universities at Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranks the W. P. Carey School No. 22 globally for economics/business.

Carey School of Business at Arizona State University ranks Top 30 nationwide among full-time MBA programs. The school’s evening MBA program also ranks Top 20 among part-time MBA programs.

“We’re happy the new rankings confirm we’re achieving consistent excellence here at the W. P. Carey School of Business,” says the school’s dean, Amy Hillman. “We have a phenomenal group of faculty, staff and students who repeatedly boost us to the top, year after year.”

On the new rankings list, the W. P. Carey School’s full-time MBA program comes in at No. 27, the best ranking for any Arizona school.

“We are proud to offer one of the three least expensive programs in the Top 30,” explains Stacey Whitecotton, the W. P. Carey School’s senior associate dean of graduate programs. “We also have one of the two smallest programs in the Top 30, allowing us to keep the class sizes small and personal.”

The evening program is offered in both Tempe and north Scottsdale, and it’s the highest ranked part-time MBA program in Arizona.
