U.S. News & World Report recently released its top business school and individual program rankings for 2013. The Boler Part-Time MBA was ranked second among Northeast Ohio programs and among the top six part-time MBA programs in Ohio.

The methodology used by U.S. News & World Report is based on five factors:

  1. Average peer assessment score.
  2. Average GMAT score and average GRE quantitative and verbal scores of part-time MBA students entering in fall 2012.
  3. Average undergraduate GPA.
  4. Work experience. The percentage of the business school’s fall 2012 MBA enrollment that is part-time.

The Boler Part-Time MBA brings together classroom learning and real-world business experience where students connect to engaged faculty, highly motivated student peers, successful alumni, and the Greater Cleveland business community in unique and powerful ways. Core courses focus on managing innovation, from idea generation to feasibility, implementation, and evaluation. Each course includes a business challenge from a Northeast Ohio-based company, and students propose solutions to company executives at the conclusion of the course. Because multiple business disciplines are taught in each course, students can make connections across business disciplines sooner, allowing them to apply learning efficiently and more effectively. This empowers students to be more productive, creative, and better prepared in the workplace.
