Monmouth University Part-time MBA Program Among the Best in the Nation

The Leon Hess Business School at Monmouth University’s part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) program was recognized as one of the best programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report in its annual “Best Graduate Schools” rankings.

The program is ranked among the best part-time MBA programs in the nation. Each program considered had to meet the conditions of being accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

“I am thrilled that our MBA program was recognized with this honor,” said Don Moliver, dean of the Leon Hess Business School. “The ranking is a direct reflection of the commitment of our faculty, staff, and alumni. Our personalized education for busy professionals prepares graduates to compete and prosper in today’s global marketplace.”

The MBA program includes core and advanced courses in the key business disciplines of accounting, finance, economics, marketing, management, and business law, with strong emphases placed on international, ethical, and technological perspectives within a broad framework.

The Leon Hess Business School, among the top 5 percent of business schools internationally accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, offers MBA program tracks in accounting, finance, and real estate.

U.S. News rankings in business are based on formulas that consider reputation surveys, selectivity, research funding and productivity, outcomes for graduates, and other factors.
