UNC Charlotte’s MBA once again named a “Tier 1” program in Global MBA Rankings

Thursday, April 6, 2017

UNC Charlotte’s MBA has once again been recognized as a top program in the nation by CEO Magazine. The Belk College of Business’ MBA was named a “Tier 1” program for North American universities in the newly released 2017 CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings.

UNC Charlotte consistently has placed among top part-time MBA programs nationally and internationally. In 2016, the Belk College’s MBA was ranked a “Tier 1” program by CEO Magazine, shortly after being named the No. 20 part-time MBA in the nation by Bloomberg Businessweek. Recently, U.S. News & World Report ranked the Belk College’s MBA No. 42 in the nation.

"We are proud to be recognized again as a ‘Tier 1’ MBA program by CEO Magazine. This acknowledgement is a direct reflection of the success of our students and alumni, the dedication of our faculty and staff, and the strong reputation of the Belk College’s MBA program,” said Dr. Jennifer Troyer, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Programs.

CEO Magazine examines the nuts and bolts of an MBA: quality of faculty, cost, class size, professional development, international exposure and delivery methods. Using a ranking system entirely geared and weighted to fact-based criteria, CEO Magazine aims to provide potential students with a performance benchmark for universities.

“Our MBA program continues to grow and adapt to the needs of Charlotte’s working professionals, offering an exceptional experience, strong return on investment and a high level of flexibility,” Dr. Troyer added.

Based at UNC Charlotte Center City in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, the University’s MBA program now enrolls close to 300 students. With a 90 percent employment rate, UNC Charlotte MBA graduates enjoy an average salary increase of $20,000.

The launch of a hybrid MBA format in the fall of 2016 has afforded students the additional flexibility of learning online and collaborating face-to-face at UNC Charlotte’s Center City campus. With concentrations in such thriving industries as energy, commercial banking, real estate finance and business analytics, students can design an individualized program that realizes their professional goals.
