The Full-Time MBA program at UC Irvine’s Paul Merage School of Business has moved up four spots to tie for 44th among the nation’s Top MBA Programs according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 Best Business Schools ranking. The Merage School ranked 22nd among public schools on the list and 6th in California.
“Our continued ascent this year in the rankings can be attributed primarily to the success of our career center in getting students placed in jobs upon graduation and at three months out. Also, our continued focus on personalized attention, keeping each and every student engaged with connections to our alumni and our strong corporate partner community has contributed,” said Jon Kaplan, assistant dean and director of the Full-Time MBA Program at the Merage School.
“This current U.S. News & World Report ranking reinforces the Merage School placement among the top 10 percent of accredited programs in the U.S.,” said Dean Eric Spangenberg. “Our students are the beneficiaries of our efforts to enhance our programs and curriculum, and strengthen ties with recruiters and the business community. They continue to benefit as we maintain our focus on them and our ability to deliver the highest quality MBA education possible.”
