Rollins College’s Crummer Graduate School of Business announced that its part-time MBA program ranked in the top 20 in the U.S., placing 16th on Bloomberg Businessweek's 2015 rankings of the best business schools. This recognition maintains Crummer's status as the No. 1 part-time MBA in Florida.

“We’re thrilled for Crummer to be acknowledged again by Bloomberg, reinforcing our position as the top part-time MBA program in Florida,” said Tom McEvoy, dean of the Crummer Graduate School of Business. “The personal attention our students receive, coupled with an applied learning approach from our world-class faculty and staff, creates proven leaders who succeed in a variety of industries around the globe.”

Employment options and compensation figures are optimistic for MBA graduates, according to Jonathan Rodkin of Bloomberg Businessweek: "Most MBAs have no trouble landing jobs: Three months after graduation, 88 percent of MBAs have been hired—and offered a nice pay bump. Graduates saw an 81 percent jump over their median compensation before B-School. After six to eight years, pay typically increased another 64 percent to around $169,000 a year.”

Rollins MBA students benefit from the school’s distinguished faculty, who bring years of real-world business experience to the classroom. Students are also given many opportunities to engage in extraordinary hands-on learning experiences from leaders in business through domestic and global consulting projects and other programs in corporate, entrepreneurial and philanthropic environments.

Alumni receive several lifelong benefits, including free courses, a suite of career services, and networking opportunities with more than 6,700 fellow Crummer graduates.
To determine MBA rankings, Bloomberg measures the employer survey, alumni survey, student survey, job placement rate and starting salary.
