The Wake Forest University School of Business Part-Time Master of Business Administration (MBA) program recently ranked No. 22 among part-time programs nationwide and No. 1 among North Carolina programs, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 list.

For 12 consecutive years, Wake Forest has held the highest statewide ranking among part-time MBA programs in North Carolina business schools. Program highlights include a 2-year lockstep cohort-based program; a curriculum that integrates all business functions and three highly marketable degree concentrations: business analytics, finance, and leadership and strategy.

“We are proud to know that our part-time MBA program is top-ranked and nationally recognized. Our market-connected faculty and rigorous curriculum prepare our talented working professional students to improve their skills and advance in fulfilling and satisfying careers,” said Timothy Janke, Associate Dean for Wake Forest MBA programs.

The rankings are based on student metrics such as work experience, GPA and GMAT test scores, in addition to enrollment and program perceptions from peer schools across the nation. The publication surveyed 300 part-time MBA programs for this year’s ranking.

“We are committed to providing an MBA education that both prepares our students to progress in their chosen industries and accommodates their need for increased flexibility as working professionals,” said Michelle Roehm, Interim Dean and Peter C. Brockway Chair of Strategic Management. “The part-time MBA top program ranking affirms our dedication to a practical learning experience that provides a strategic business perspective.”

The MBA for working professionals is offered at Wake Forest’s main campus in Winston-Salem in the evenings and at the Wake Forest University Charlotte Center campus in Uptown Charlotte evenings and Saturdays. Recently, the School of Business launched a new Online MBA program that offers the same world-class MBA education to students from virtually anywhere.

The U.S. News & World Report ranking adds to the School’s national designations. The School of Business currently ranks No. 13 among the nation’s top undergraduate business programs, according to Poets & Quants for Undergrads.
