Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranks Ole Miss MBA Program in Top 50

The University of Mississippi’s Master of Business Administration program has been named among the nation’s best by Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The rankings, released Monday (Nov. 4), place Ole Miss at No. 34 among American public universities.

For the 2019 edition, Bloomberg ranked MBA programs using four categories: Compensation, Learning, Networking and Entrepreneurship. The UM program came in at No. 7 in both Entrepreneurship and Learning.

The Bloomberg Businessweek 2019-20 Best B-Schools ranking is based on 26,804 survey responses from MBA students, alumni and recruiters in 2019 about their goals and experiences, as well as compensation and job placement data from each school.

The list is based on data compiled from more than 9,000 students, 14,920 alumni, 900 corporate recruiters, and compensation and job-placement data from each school.

The market for MBA programs is increasingly more and more competitive from year to year,” said Ashley McGee, the program’s director. “To remain alongside the top programs in the country, is a testament to the true value and quality of our program.
