SEATTLE, March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Online business education and career guide Top Management Degrees (http://www.topmanagementdegrees.com/) has published a ranking of the Top 10 Master's in Management Programs in Texas (http://www.topmanagementdegrees.com/rankings/best-management-masters-programs-tx/).
This Master's in Management ranking is based upon data collected on master's degree programs focused on management and leadership within the state of Texas. The US Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences' National Center for Educational Statistics lists 480 educational institutions in Texas. For this ranking, these were vetted according to the most recent data from the National Center for Education Statistics, PayScale's Graduate School Salary Report, US News & World Report, and the Princeton Review. Master's programs were first identified based on their location and curriculum focus, and then ranked on their accreditation, affordability, average salary, and prestige.
Placing first in this ranking is Dallas Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas in Richardson, Texas. Ranking second is the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. In third place is the University-Commerce's College of Business at Texas A&M in the city of Commerce, Texas.
Other schools making the list include:
St. Edward's University Bill Munday School of Business - Austin, Texas
Our Lady of the Lake University School of Business and Leadership - San Antonio, Texas
Texas A&M University-Central Texas College of Business Administration - Killeen, Texas
Belhaven University School of Business Administration - Houston, Texas

A Master's in Management degree program is an alternative to the Master's of Business Administration. "Much like the MBA, this degree focuses on general business management, but Master's in Management programs are willing to matriculate students with less professional experience," says Tammie Cagle, editor at Top Management Degrees. A Master's in Management degree program covers core curriculum in business and management topics that are relevant to today's global business world, but places greater emphasis upon the practical application of leadership rather than the statistical analysis of business. "This type of master's program," Cagle explains further, "can be advantageous for an organization wanting to support the professional development of a colleague while training them in the specific business processes of their own company." The schools in this regionally focused ranking offer programs that span a variety of emphasis, so students can compare and contrast programs according to their specific interest. Prospective students who are hoping to further their journey in the field of business will find this ranking useful as they go through this important decision-making process.
