Tuesday, March 14, 2017

PHILADELPHIA (March 14, 2017) – For the fourth consecutive year, Saint Joseph’s University’s Executive MBA program has been ranked among the top 15 business schools nationwide by U.S. News & World Report, announced in the 2018 edition of “Best Graduate Schools,” released today. Ranked at No. 12, the Haub School of Business EMBA was joined by the school’s graduate marketing (No. 12), information systems (No. 20) and finance (No. 21) programs  in receiving recognition.

In the EMBA, marketing and finance categories, Saint Joseph’s was one of only two Philadelphia area schools to make the list. 

The Haub School’s part-time MBA program was also ranked by the report — among the top 150 in its category, at No. 137.

“Our graduate business programs give students the knowledge and experience they need to advance their careers in real-time,” says Joseph A. DiAngelo Jr., Ed.D. '70, dean of the Haub School. “The value of a Haub education lies in our expert faculty’s ability to engage students in theory, while simultaneously offering best practices applicable to challenges their students might be facing on the job.”

Stephen Porth, Ph.D. ‘80, associate dean and executive director of graduate programs, echoes DiAngelo’s affirmation. “This recognition reflects the successful collaboration between the Haub School faculty and students, whose dedication empowers our programs to compete at the highest level — regionally and nationally.”

U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Graduate Schools” reviews graduate and professional school programs in business, education, law, medicine and engineering on an annual basis. Rankings are based on statistical data and expert data derived from peer assessments and college self-reported statistics on topics such as student/faculty ratios and funding for faculty research.
