Forbes Ranks Rollins #1 MBA in Florida for 8th Consecutive Placement

Forbes Magazine Ranks Rollins as Number One MBA Program in Florida for Eighth Consecutive Placement

October 9, 2013 - The Rollins College Crummer Graduate School of Business is ranked the number one MBA program in Florida and 52nd nationally according to Forbes magazine. The publication cited Rollins MBA as the top graduate business school in Florida, ahead of University of Miami and the University of Florida in its eighth biennial ranking of business schools.

Forbes conducted a comprehensive ranking of business schools that compared the cost of getting an MBA to the monetary rewards for obtaining the degree. Forbes’ eighth biennial ranking of business schools, based on the return on investment graduates have achieved after five years, shows that alumni of the best programs still command high salaries with their degrees.

“The continuing recognition from Forbes validates the importance of the MBA program and the quality of education that students will receive at Rollins,” said Craig McAllaster, dean, Rollins MBA. “Our students are acquiring the business skills and academic background that prepares them to succeed in a highly competitive arena and play a vital role in Central Florida’s growing economy.”

Rollins was also recently ranked one of the top ten least expensive private business schools in the country by U.S. News and World Report. “The two rankings exemplify Rollins’ standards of instilling a quality education for our students while being receptive to the current down-turned economy and doing our best to manage tuition increases,” said McAllaster.

The Forbes ranking of MBA programs is based on the return on investment (ROI) achieved by the graduates from the class of 2008. Forbes surveyed alumni at universities across the nation and compared earnings over five years following business school to the opportunity cost (e.g., taking into account two years of forgone compensation, tuition and required fees); adjusted for cost of living expenses; and discounted their earnings gains using a rate tied to money market yields. Forbes also discounted tuition to account for students who pay in-state rates and for the non-repayable financial aid that schools dole out.
