Whitman MBA Program Ranks #67

Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management full-time MBA program took the #67 spot in Bloomberg Bussinessweek’s annual ranking of top programs across the world. Bloomberg collected data from 177 schools, including Whitman’s MBA program, which is among more than 700 business schools nationwide that have achieved AACSB accreditation status. The Bloomberg Businessweek ranking is based on five elements: a survey of newly minted MBAs, a poll of corporate recruiters, student survey, job placement rate and starting salary.

“We’re pleased to be ranked again by Businessweek, validation of our continued efforts to maintain a relevant and challenging curriculum combined with experiential learning opportunities,” said Don Harter, Whitman’s associate dean for master’s programs. “This year, the employers with whom we work and who hire our students ranked us in their top 50 business schools. This is evidence of what we already know – that Whitman’s learning environment produces well-prepared, well-rounded business leaders. Our focus not only on curriculum but also real-world, practical experiences uniquely prepares our MBA students for successful business careers.”

Whitman’s MBA program incorporates both the theoretical background and practical experience students need to succeed in today’s ever-changing global economy. The program’s experiential learning component encourages students to apply classroom learning to business problems, connect with decision makers and deliver tangible results that add value to sponsoring organizations. Students build an experiential portfolio through internships, consulting, specialized courses, community engagement and other practical experiences that make them more valuable in the marketplace.
