The Sheldon B. Lubar School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has been ranked 17th in the Midwest region for its part-time MBA program, according to the 2013 Bloomberg Businessweek ranking report.

Nationally, the Lubar School ranks 71st for its part-time MBA program, advancing four positions from the prior ranking. There are approximately 1,650 business schools nationwide.

“We’re extremely pleased to receive this national recognition of our program,” says Lubar Dean Timothy L. Smunt.  “It serves as a great acknowledgement of the professional outcomes that our students achieve as a result of the program.”

The Lubar MBA was recently revised to meet the competitive needs of students and employers.  The program now includes a more intense focus on the development of critical and analytical thinking skills, to develop skilled managers who are able to analyze information, develop solutions, and communicate effectively across all levels of the organization..

The Businessweek ranking is based on eight separate measures of student satisfaction, academic quality, and post-graduation outcomes. The student survey contributes 40 percent of the final ranking, with academic quality and post-MBA outcomes contributing 30 percent each.
