UGA MBA program rises in Businessweek rankings

Athens, Ga. – The full-time MBA program in the University of Georgia Terry College of Business continues to place among the nation’s best, according to the 2014 rankings from Bloomberg Businessweek.

The Terry College program climbed to 25th among public schools and No. 50 nationwide, up two spots from its previous ranking.

“This is the second straight Businessweek ranking that shows Terry’s MBA program moving in a positive direction,” said Terry College Dean Benjamin C. Ayers. “I’m always proud to see that the value we put into educating student leaders is being recognized beyond our campus.”

Businessweek ranks MBA programs on three criteria: a student satisfaction survey, an employer survey, and the expertise of each school’s faculty. The Terry College’s higher ranking comes due, in part, to a nine-space jump on the student survey.

“The student survey results show a highly favorable trend,” said Santanu Chatterjee, director of Terry’s full-time MBA program. “Our recent graduating classes clearly felt that Terry’s program positioned them for success in the job market. That’s the kind of feedback that’s nice to hear.”

The program’s upward momentum goes beyond Businessweek. Earlier this year, The Economist placed Terry’s MBA program at 17th among U.S. public schools and No. 42 overall among all U.S. schools.
