The No. 13 ranking is the fourth best among public universities in the country and the highest overall ranking for a public program in the state of North Carolina. The Bryan MBA program leapt 37 spots from the No. 50 ranking earned two years ago.

“I could not be more pleased with this fantastic improvement in our ranking,” said Bryan School Dean McRae C. Banks. “Our faculty and staff have worked hard to improve our program and make it relevant to both students and employers. Our focus on producing

exceptional problem solvers who understand innovation, globalization, sustainability and ethics is resonating with students and employers.

“To have the fourth best MBA among public universities — eclipsed only by Berkeley, UCLA and Michigan — is a tremendous accomplishment that reinforces the high quality of what we are doing at UNCG.”

Sixty percent of Bryan MBA graduates reported a salary increase after completing the program.
