Madden School of Business Performs Well in Recent Rankings Released by U. S. News & World Report and College Factual
Le Moyne's MBA program and undergraduate accounting program recently received accolades in two separate national rankings.
For College Factual, Le Moyne's accounting program was ranked #53 out of 601 programs in the U.S. in the "Best for the Money" category, placing it in the top 10 percent nationally. This represented an improvement of 34 positions over the previous year. In New York state, the program was #11 out of 45 ranked for value, up five spots over the 2018 position. College Factual’s "Best Accounting Schools for the Money Ranking" measures the average yearly cost of the school, the average time students take to graduate and the quality the school provides to students.
"While College Factual's rankings are calculated using a number of variables, 'quality' was the highest driver in our ranking," said Mitchell Franklin, Ph.D., director of the undergraduate and graduate accounting programs. "This is consistent with our goal of providing students with in-demand skills through our well-rounded education focused on the whole person to succeed in the nation's largest firms and corporations, as our job placement reflects.”
The College's MBA program was listed in the 2020 U.S. News & World Report graduate school rankings for part-time programs. It was tied for number 188 in the country, up 18 spots from the previous year. Rankings for part-time programs are based on several factors, including peer assessment, the average GMAT score and average undergrad GPA.
The recent rankings followed a strong showing in the U.S. News & World Report undergraduate rankings release in September 2018. The Madden School of Business moved up 14 places to number 235 in the overall national business school rankings. The School was also ranked for three specific disciplines – management information systems (#18 nationally and #2 in New York), marketing (#29 nationally and #3 in New York) and accounting (#44 nationally and #3 in New York). Rankings are for schools that are accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
