The latest from the U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of 2021 Best Business Schools includes Auburn University’s Harbert College of Business among the top 30 public schools in the nation.
Based on a survey of Full-Time MBA programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), the ranking gave Harbert its third consecutive year increase with a jump of 13 spots to number 56 overall among public and private schools.
“The Harbert College of Business is keenly focused on delivering quality graduate programs that prepare our students to step into leadership roles at corporations of their choosing and influence sound decision-making,” said Associate Dean of Graduate and International Programs Stan Harris.
Programs out of Harbert are ranked based on MBA graduates’ starting salaries, employment rates and recruiters’ assessments. Harbert’s survey scores improved this year in all three of those categories.
“Our Full-Time MBA draws talented students from across the country due to its robust curriculum, talented and engaged faculty, and outstanding return on investment,” said Executive Director of Full-Time and Online MBA Programs Jim Parrish.
“When you consider that we provide students a firm foundation in advanced business theory and practical training in leadership and career development, the value of our program becomes obvious,” Parrish added.
U.S. News & World Report’s rankings better assist students to identify business schools with the best programs to learn essential business skills.
