Wake Forest University School of Business part-time Master of Business Administration (MBA) program is once again recognized among the best programs in the country, ranking at No. 19 among part-time programs nationwide and No. 1 among those in North Carolina, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Graduate Schools list.

For 13 consecutive years, Wake Forest has held the highest statewide ranking among part-time MBA programs in North Carolina business schools. The 20-month lockstep, cohort-based program offers students a curriculum that integrates all business functions and three highly marketable degree concentrations: business analytics, finance, and leadership and strategy. Concentration options allow students to pursue a path that best fits their professional goals, providing working professionals additional flexibility to pursue their education while continuing their careers.

“Our part-time MBA program is highly regarded and recognized throughout the country and state, said John Sumanth, Associate Dean for MBA Programs. “Our market-connected faculty and demanding curriculum enable our skilled working professional students to develop their abilities and advance in rewarding and meaningful professions.”

The rankings are based on student metrics such as work experience and past academic performance, and program perceptions from peer school deans and program directors from across the nation.

“Our goal is to provide an MBA education that not only prepares our students for professional advancement but also allows them the flexibility they need as working professionals,” said Michelle Roehm, Interim Dean and Peter C. Brockway Chair of Strategic Management. “The part-time MBA program ranking affirms our commitment to a practical learning environment that provides a strategic business perspective.”

Wake Forest’s MBA program is offered on its main campus in Winston-Salem in the evenings and at the Wake Forest University Charlotte Center campus in Uptown Charlotte evenings and Saturdays. In 2020, the School of Business launched its Online MBA program that offers the same world-class MBA education to students from virtually anywhere.

The latest ranking is in addition to the School’s national designation as a top-tier business school by Fortune and the Economist.
