The MBA program of SCU’s Leavey School of Business soared in the annual rankings of the nation’s top 20 part-time MBA programs in the country, rising to 11th, according to U.S. News & World Report.

The business school’s ranking among the nation’s 218 part-time programs was six spots higher than its ranking in 2002, positioning the MBA program as the fourth best part-time program in California, as reported by U.S. News in its annual “Best Graduate Schools” rankings, posted on its Web site, www.usnews.com.

“As the premier business program for Silicon Valley, our MBA program has long been recognized in the region as combining rigorous study with reflective engagement in real-world issues,” said Barry Z. Posner, dean of the Leavey School of Business and professor of leadership. “This integration of theory and practice within the framework of ethical decision making now has the attention of national business educators.”

MBA applications last fall were at the highest levels in three years.

The business school part-time rankings were based on a reputation survey of business school deans and MBA program directors. In addition to Santa Clara University, the other Bay Area part-time program ranked in the top 20 was the University of California, Berkeley. The University of California, Los Angeles and the University of Southern California also were ranked in the top 20.
