DePaul University’s part-time MBA program placed among the 50 best programs in the country in U.S. News & World Report’s 2020 Best Graduate Schools survey, achieving the program’s highest ranking in seven years.

The part-time MBA at DePaul’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business ranked No. 44 – 12 places higher than last year – and is now in the top 25 percent of part-time MBA programs in the national rankings, which were released March 12. 

“What’s most impressive about our ranking is that we earned it while recruiting the nation’s ninth largest part-time MBA program by enrollment,” says Misty Johanson, dean of DePaul’s Driehaus College of Business. “Our business school is committed to maintaining admission quality while also growing our overall graduate business enrollment.” 

DePaul’s MBA in Accountancy also was recognized in the rankings. The program received its first-ever U.S. News ranking – No. 41 – in the specialty MBA category for MBA in Accountancy programs nationally.

Mark Frigo, Ezerski Endowed Chair and faculty director of the MBA in Accountancy program, says the ranking reflects the program’s reputation for high quality.
 “We designed our innovative MBA in Accountancy program to provide our students with the strategic and technical skills needed to succeed as dynamic accounting professionals,” he says. “Our students are very successful in corporate finance organizations as well as leading accounting and consulting firms.”
