The Merrick School of Business was recognized as offering one of the top part-time M.B.A. programs in the 2012 edition of U.S. News & World Report's Best Graduate Schools. As of 2006, the M.B.A. has been offered in partnership with Towson University and is known as the UB/Towson M.B.A. Highlights of the rankings were published in the Best Graduate Schools 2012 edition book.
Ranked alongside part-time M.B.A. programs at Duquesne University, San Francisco State University, the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, and several others, the UB/Towson M.B.A. has a growing reputation for its high-quality faculty, flexible scheduling and wide array of specialized content designed to meet the needs of regional employers. It's the region’s only AACSB-accredited M.B.A. program that requires a project management course to ensure that its graduates have the requisite knowledge, the skills and the competencies needed to execute key workplace strategies and initiatives. It is also the only area program that offers students the choice of on-campus and online classes.
"We're proud to be recognized by U.S. News as being among the country's best M.B.A.s," said Merrick School of Business Dean Darlene Smith. "You can't receive national recognition for a part-time M.B.A. if it doesn't resonate in the marketplace, and ours clearly does. I credit the program's success to our faculty, our staff, our students and our alumni who are making an impact in Baltimore and beyond."
The school has granted nearly 4,500 M.B.A. degrees since the M.B.A. program was established in 1971.
Currently, the UB/Towson M.B.A. offers nine areas of specialization, which allows students to enhance their careers and meet their personal and professional goals:
