The London-based International Graduate Forum has again ranked University of the Sciences’ Master of Business Administration program among the nation’s elite. Housed under the University’s Mayes College of Healthcare and Business Policy, the MBA program was named a tier one program among other competing programs across the United States in a list published in the January issue of CEO Magazine.
 
The forum’s rankings are based on key performance indicators considered to be of interest and value to potential students. International diversity, class sizes, student work experience, faculty-to-student ratios, and faculty qualifications – both academic and professional – are given considerable weight.
 
“One of our program’s greatest strengths is its flexible offerings, which are tailored to working professionals,” said Andrew Peterson, PharmD, PhD, Wyeth Dean of Mayes College. “We offer both evening and online course, plus the opportunity to switch between formats, to help accommodate changing family and work obligations, and learning needs.”
 
According to a recent survey of USciences’ MBA graduates:
  • 93% had jobs within six months
  • 89% make more than $50,000—and 25% make more than $125,000
  • 86% received at least one promotion, or had changed jobs for a higher one, since graduating from the program
  • 84% were employed in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries

"Our faculty all come from industry, and one of the greatest advantages they offer is a robust network," said Robert Mueller, EdD, director of the MBA program at USciences. "We preach the importance of networking for careers and lifelong learning to all our students; as opposed to a traditional faculty where their network is based on academic relationships."

CEO Magazine recently published an article regarding the University's MBA program: Innovation at University of the Sciences MBA Program.
