LAS VEGAS – March 17, 2020 – The UNLV Lee Business School MBA program has broken the Top 100 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of part-time MBA programs, released last week. Rising from its last position at 117, the program rose 32 spots to No. 85 (tied). The part-time MBA ranking is part of U.S. News and World Report’s ranking of “America’s Best Graduate Schools.”

“We continuously work to enhance our program and foster instruction that matches the evolving needs our students face in furthering their career potential. This includes quality students and faculty, valued dual degree and concentration options, and experiential learning and career development opportunities,” said Lisa Davis, associate director of the Lee Business School MBA program. “The upward movement is a testament to those efforts and the reputation for quality business instruction that we continue to build.”  

The rankings compared more than 300 AACSB-accredited schools nationwide and used methodology based on five factors: peer assessment, entrance exams scores (U.S. News uses both GMAT and GRE depending on the school’s requirements), average GPA, student work experience, and percentage of MBA enrollment that is part-time.

Lee Business School is one of 185 business colleges and schools to hold international dual accreditation in business and accounting by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the premier accrediting body for business and management education. This puts Lee Business School in the top five percent of business schools worldwide.

Lee Business School is the only Nevada education institution to have a part-time MBA program ranked in the Top 100 by U.S. News & World Report.
