U.S. News ranks UB/Towson MBA among best graduate programs
Degree program recognized for its online convenience and high-quality faculty
TOWSON, Md. (March 17, 2011)—The UB/Towson MBA program, co-located in the College of Business and Economics at TU and in the Merrick School of Business at UB since 2006, has been cited in the 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Graduate Schools.
Ranked alongside part-time MBA programs at Duquesne University, San Francisco State University, the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and several others, the MBA has a growing reputation for its high-quality faculty, flexible scheduling and wide array of specialized content designed to meet the needs of regional employers.
It’s the region’s only AACSB-accredited MBA program that requires a project management course to ensure that its graduates have the requisite knowledge, the skills and the competencies needed to execute key workplace strategies and initiatives. It is also the only area program that offers students the choice of on campus and online classes.
“We are thrilled about this award and it is a further testament to the strength of the UB/Towson partnership,” says Shohreh Kaynama, dean of Towson University’s College of Business and Economics. “The UB/Towson MBA is student focused and caters to the needs of working professionals.”
“We’re proud to be recognized by U.S. News as being among the country’s best MBAs,” says Merrick School of Business Dean Darlene Smith . “You can’t receive national recognition for a part-time MBA if it doesn’t resonate in the marketplace, and ours clearly does. I credit the program’s success to our faculty, our students and our alumni who are making an impact in Baltimore and beyond.”
Currently, the UB/Towson MBA offers nine areas of specialization, which allows students to enhance their careers and meet their personal and professional goals:
