3.25.2013 News Release

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – The Wake Forest University School of Business part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, designed exclusively for working professionals, ranked #1 in North Carolina for the fourth consecutive year, and was the only program of its kind in the state ranked in the Top 40 in the recently released U.S. News & World Report rankings.

The part-time MBA program is offered at the Wake Forest University Charlotte Center in Uptown and at Wake Forest’s main campus in Winston-Salem. Students have the option to attend a two-year lockstep program in the evenings (Charlotte and Winston-Salem) or on Saturdays (Charlotte).

Overall, the Wake Forest part-time MBA ranked #28 nationally, placing the program in the top 10 percent, and representing an improvement of four positions over last year’s ranking.

“MBA students in our working professional programs hail from a range of industries and organizations – nearly 100 across both programs in Charlotte alone. They are able to immediately apply their classroom learning to the workplace and frequently report promotions even before graduation,” said Ken Middaugh, associate dean for Working Professional MBA & Executive Education Programs. “Our students, faculty, staff and alumni should be commended for continuing to make the Wake Forest MBA a great investment.”
