WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Wake Forest University School of Business is ranked #30 in the nation in the Bloomberg Businessweek 2015 overall ranking of part-time MBA programs. The publication surveyed more than 13,5000 students and 18,540 alumni from 177 business school programs.

“This survey shows our recent graduates think highly of their Wake Forest education,” said Matthew Phillips, associate dean of the MBA program. “We offer them a way to accelerate their careers with comprehensive management skills that are valued by the marketplace, focusing on personal and team leadership development.”

The Wake Forest MBA program melds conceptual fundamentals with workplace experience to develop students into passionate business leaders who model personal integrity while achieving practical results. Our programs deliver broad and strategic perspectives, offering the ability to immediately apply classroom learning in students’ professional lives. Working professionals have the option of taking evening classes in Winston-Salem or evenings or Saturdays at the Wake Forest University Charlotte Center.

This year the publication shifted to annual results from a biennial timing. The methodology focused on student satisfaction and for the first time, included alumni performance post-graduation. The magazine eliminated the use of academic quality data such as test scores, years of work experience, and graduation rates to compile the rankings.
