U.S. News and World Report has ranked the University of New Hampshire’s part-time MBA programme among the top 100 in the nation.
UNH’s Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics was the only business school north of Boston to make the top 100. This is the second year in a row that both the part-time and online MBA programmes have been ranked in the top 100 by U.S. News.
UNH, New Hampshire’s flagship University, has designed the part-time MBA programme for working professionals and offers evening classes at its Durham and Manchester campuses and online.
According to Victoria Parker, associate dean for postgraduate education and faculty administration, being ranked among the best part-time MBA programmes in the nation is a testament to the exceptional students who choose Paul College for their studies.
“Students in our programme average 10 years of professional experience, which enlivens and enriches class discussions,” said Victoria Parker, associate dean for postgraduate education and faculty administration. “They learn both from one another and from our experienced faculty.”
U.S. News and World Report based its rankings on five criteria for part-time MBA programmes: peer reputation, average GMAT and GRE scores of students starting the programme average undergraduate GPA average number of years of work experience and the percentage of the total MBA programme enrolment that is in the part-time MBA programme.
UNH offers the only part-time and online MBA programmes in New Hampshire that hold the prestigious Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business accreditation. Only 30 percent of MBA programmes in the nation and five percent in the world hold this distinction.
