March 13, 2012–Boston University School of Management placed 37th overall in the 2013 U.S. News & World Report ranking of graduate business schools. The ranking is based on overall academic quality of the MBA program, employment success, the academic quality of entering students, and peer and recruiter ratings.

The School of Management’s Professional Evening MBA program was again ranked #1 in Boston, and rose seven positions to place 25th in the nation. Part-time MBA rankings are based on measures of academic quality and peer ratings from business school deans and MBA program directors at each of the nation’s accredited 326 part-time MBA programs.

BU School of Management’s peer assessment scores, which are determined by business school deans and directors, increased for both the graduate school ranking and part-time MBA ranking. This demonstrates external recognition of the School’s focus on research and innovation in teaching.

U.S. News & World Report also republished the Healthcare Management Ranking, where Boston University remained 11th overall.

The School of Management continues to implement a bold strategic plan pursuing excellence in three industry sectors–healthcare, digital technology, and energy and the environment–in addition to the traditional management disciplines.

According to Dean Ken Freeman, focusing on these three sectors will further enhance the School’s capabilities across the core management disciplines (accounting; finance; information systems; marketing; markets, public policy, and law; operations and technology management; organizational behavior; and strategy and innovation). “Our students will gain a comprehensive understanding of the management disciplines and how they interrelate, and working knowledge of the three sectors that are transforming the world. As a result they will be very well informed, highly employable, and ready to make a difference to create immediate value for the world.”
