U.S. News examines a variety of factors when ranking full-time MBA programs, including peer assessment, recruiter assessment, mean starting salary and bonuses for graduates, graduate employment rates, and admissions selectivity. Peer assessment through a survey of business school deans, GMAT scores, undergraduate GPA, work experience, and the ratio of part-time to full-time students determines the part-time MBA ranking. All 441 master’s programs in business accredited by AACSB International are considered for the ranking.
