College of Business MBA program excels in rankings

Tallahassee, Fla.U.S. News & World Report ranked the Florida State University College of Business' Master of Business Administration program among the best in the nation, placing the school at No. 40 among all public universities, among the top 10 schools in the Southeast and No. 75 among all 426 schools surveyed.

The rankings, announced in the magazine’s annual “2011 America's Best Graduate Schools” list, are calculated using two types of data: expert opinions about program quality and statistical indicators that measure the quality of a school's faculty, research and students.

"We are very proud of our students, faculty and staff for our recent ranking in U.S. News & World Report," said Caryn L. Beck-Dudley, dean of the FSU College of Business. "In the midst of a weak job market, our ranking reflects our ability to expertly educate our students, and reaffirms that our individual approach in the classroom, coupled with our high level of international acclaim, is providing our students with the education they need to excel in the classroom and the business world."

This year's rankings come from data from surveys of more than 1,200 programs and some 11,000 academics and professionals conducted in fall 2009.
