BusinessWeek ranks Daniels College No. 6 in nation

The University of Denver Daniels College of Business earned the designation as one of the top graduate business schools. According to BusinessWeek’s 2007 rankings of part-time MBA programs released Nov. 1, Daniels was ranked No. 6 nationally and No. 1 regionally. 

Daniels, the sole Colorado school named to the list, was nationally ranked ahead of schools that included the University of Chicago, Boston College, SMU, Carnegie Mellon, NYU and the University of Texas-Austin. 

“At Daniels, we have long attracted faculty with as much experience in the business world as in the academic world,” says Daniels Interim Dean Bruce Hutton. “No one understands the value of this more than the working professional enrolled in our part-time MBA program. And, our graduates demonstrate that they can make a big difference in the world while making a bigger income. Of the top 10 schools nationally, we scored No. 4 for students reporting a salary increase because of our program.” 

This is the first year for BusinessWeek’s report on “The Best Part-Time MBA Programs.” It included a student survey sent to 9,274 part-time MBA students at 81 programs measuring student satisfaction; an academic quality score that included average work experience, average class size and the number of business electives available to part-time MBA students; and a measure of post-MBA outcomes based on the percentage of survey respondents who say their program was “completely” responsible for them achieving their goals. 

The Wall Street Journal named the Daniels College of Business one of the top business schools in the world and the Aspen Institute gave Daniels the “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” ranking.
