WASHINGTON, Nov. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Bloomberg BusinessWeek ranks the Howard University School of Business among the nation’s top full-time business school programs. Howard University’s full-time Master of Business Administration program was ranked No. 33 among top schools, marking the highest ranking the school has ever received from the annual Bloomberg BusinessWeek survey.

This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, faculty, alumni, corporate partners, and high-achieving MBA students.”
In honor of 30 years of producing the ranking, Bloomberg BusinessWeek visited 15 schools, interviewing deans, professors and administrators which led to a change in the survey’s methodology. This newly improved ranking methodology includes surveys with students, alumni, and recruiters.

Supel. “Our staff, faculty and alumni work extremely hard each year to provide students with the learning opportunities they need to be successful in business and our students consistently meet the challenges of the program.”
