SAN DIEGO, Oct. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Professional MBA program at the University of San Diego School of Business is again the top part-time MBA program in San Diego and maintains its place among the top 20 part-time MBA programs offered by U.S. universities, according to rankings released today by Bloomberg Businessweek.
"We are proud to be ranked as the top part-time MBA program in San Diego and a top 20 part-time MBA program in the nation," says Jaime Alonso Gómez, dean of the School of Business. "This significant achievement reflects the strength and dedication of the USD School of Business faculty and staff and underscores the positive impact our program has on students and alumni."
This year's rankings are based on feedback from students from the Class of 2015 and alumni who graduated between 2007 and 2009. The USD Professional MBA program ranked first in San Diego, fourth among all schools in the state of California and 13th among all schools in the United States. The program was last ranked 17th in the nation by Bloomberg Businessweek.
The Professional MBA program, formerly called the Evening MBA program, recently launched a hybrid format which allows students to study at their own pace off-campus via distance learning while also retaining face-to-face contact with faculty and peers through a once a month meeting on the USD campus. This new format, available to students starting in spring, includes 60 percent of instruction onsite and 40 percent online. Additional details can be found on the School of Business website.
