In the newly released U.S. News & World Report 2021 Best Graduate Schools Rankings, Isenberg’s On-Campus MBA program was named number 53 among the nation’s full-time MBA programs, having risen more than 20 spots from the previous year’s rankings. The new ranking makes Isenberg the best public business school full-time MBA program in the Northeast.
Among public business programs in the United States, Isenberg’s On-Campus MBA ranked number 16 for average starting salary of graduates ($116,000), 90 percent of whom have jobs within four months of graduation.
“These new rankings show that Isenberg’s small-but-mighty On-Campus MBA program is gaining recognition for our highly personalized and wide-ranging curriculum,” says Linda K. Enghagen, associate dean of graduate and professional programs.
Encompassing only about 60 students at any given time, the program offers focus areas in business analytics, entrepreneurship, finance, healthcare administration, and marketing. Because of the small size, all on-campus MBA students receive a fellowship that provides full program funding as well as hands-on training and experience working on real business problems and strategic initiatives for the school.
“Our MBA Fellows bring bold ideas to the table,” Enghagen says. “They leverage their individual strengths to gain experiential, real world work experience through the program.”
