William & Mary MBA programs receive top rankings by U.S. News & World Report

Once again, William & Mary's Raymond A. Mason School of Business is ranked among the nation's top graduate and professional schools according to the latest U.S. News & World Report findings.

The 2018 report, released March 14, evaluated more than 831 business programs in the United States. For the third consecutive year, the Mason School's full-time MBA program advanced in the survey, moving up 14 spots to 57th. The school's Flex MBA program earned a No. 16 position, rising an impressive 50 spots from last year and achieving the highest ranking for the program to date. It was one of only two Virginia-based schools to break the national top 20 in the category.

The Mason School's ongoing commitment to the total student experience was key to the rankings success. "The latest rankings are a reflection of the continuous improvement we are experiencing in our MBA programs," said Mason School Associate Dean Ken White.

"Our students are very well prepared, our relationships with companies and employers continue to grow and improve, and the classroom experience is world class. All of these factors, plus our unique, supportive culture, make the Mason School a special place."

U.S. News & World Report annually ranks graduate and professional programs using a variety of scoring methodologies including surveys of deans and employers, average class GMAT scores, and job placement success. The magazine releases several higher education rankings throughout the year, most recently ranking William & Mary as the sixth best public university in the nation.
