In the latest U.S. News & World Report (2016) “Best Business Schools” rankings of graduate business schools, the Full-Time MBA program at Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School moved up in the ranks. Mays found itself in the top ten among public universities, pulling in to 9th place and tying with University of Minnesota. Among all U.S. schools, Mays placed 27th overall tying with University of Minnesota and Vanderbilt University.

Mary Lea McAnally, Mays associate dean for graduate programs, said to Mays Business Online, that the rankings not only represent the progress of the school, but the also speak to the work of the students. “Our statistics on employment three months after graduation are the second strongest among public universities, and fourth in the nation,” she stated. “This speaks to the heart of students’ goals in seeking an MBA. I am pleased our program is recognized for success in employment outcomes.”

Mays’ full-time MBA program has about 60 students. Courses are completed in 16 months over an 18 month period of time. During the first year, students attend classes in four terms to complete 35 credit hours during the first year.

The U.S. News rankings are based on three types of data: quality assessment from dean and director surveys, statistical indicators that measure employment salary and placement success, and student selectivity. U.S. News surveyed all of the accredited AACSB business schools (464) and thousands of academics and professionals to arrive at these rankings.
