The Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management climbed eight slots to #28 in the latest U.S. News & World Report business school rankings.
“Owen has strengthened the core foundation of what makes a business school great: high-caliber students, a world-class faculty, and a vibrant career network that includes great companies and highly successful alumni,” said Owen Graduate School Dean Jim Bradford.
“These latest rankings – and even higher placement in January’s Financial Times survey – affirms the work we’ve been doing and gives us great momentum for the future.”
Other points from this year’s ranking include:
- Owen ranks #19 among private U.S. graduate business schools, and is one of seven programs in the top-30 to focus only on full-time graduate management education (the others include Stanford, Harvard, Tuck, Columbia, Yale, and Duke). All of the others in the top-30 have robust undergraduate and part-time programs.
- Owen is one of only two schools to break into the top-30 this year; the other was U.C.-Davis.
- Owen is also one of only six schools in the 200- to 400-enrollment range to make it into the top-30.
- Of all of the private business schools ranked in the top 30, Owen has the second-lowest tuition.
Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management is ranked as a top institution by BusinessWeek, the Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Financial Times and Forbes. For more information about Owen, visit www.owen.vanderbilt.edu.
