The latest U.S. News & World Report rankings were released on March 15, and Mason's Evening MBA jumped in the “Best Business Schools Part-time MBA” rankings from #70 last year to #59 this year.
At #59, Mason is tied with highly respected schools such as Villanova, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Connecticut, University of Illinois—Chicago, and University of Massachusetts—Amherst, among others.
Mason has made great strides in the past few years to increase the quaility of the educational experience for its MBA students. This effort is directly reflected in the 11 spot jump in the rankings.
"Other AACSB deans and MBA program directors are becoming increasingly aware of the quality of our programs," says Jorge Haddock, Dean of George Mason University's School of Management. "Our success as a school is attributed to the quality of our faculty, staff, and students."
