Forbes Once Again Ranks the Crummer MBA #1 in Florida
For the second time in a row, the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College has been named the number one MBA program in Florida by Forbes magazine. The 2019 rankings mark the 10th time overall that the Crummer Graduate School of Business has placed top of its class among Florida schools.
The Forbes MBA rankings are based on in-depth research that prioritizes a student’s return on their investment (ROI) five years after graduation. Graduates are surveyed to evaluate the cost of getting their MBAs, including any salaries that were forgone while in school, as well as the monetary rewards obtained upon receiving the MBA.
“We are honored to be recognized as an institution that provides significant value for our students, in terms of both career success and transformational academic growth,” said Dr. Deborah Crown, Dean of Crummer. “Employers continue to seek out Crummer graduates who embody the School’s mission to produce global, responsible, and innovative business leaders who impact both their organizations and communities. This achievement also speaks to the high quality of our faculty and staff who continually deliver on our promise of excellence in the classroom and beyond.”
Known for its intimate class sizes, distinguished faculty, innovative programs, and strong alumni network that spans the world, Crummer develops global business leaders and innovators through high-quality, experiential education.
“The Forbes ranking is evidence of our college’s commitment to excellence, innovation, and community,” said Rollins College President Grant Cornwell. “Central Florida businesses have great potential for driving positive change, and Crummer graduates are at the forefront of many of these leading organizations.” To view the full list of rankings, please visit http://www.forbes.com/business-schools/.
