Texas MBA No. 17 Among U.S. Programs in Mexico’s Top MBA Ranking
The McCombs School of Business landed at No. 17 in the United States and No. 27 worldwide in Expansión magazine's annual ranking of MBA programs, billed as "the best MBAs in Mexico and the world."
Harvard, Stanford, and Wharton topped the list, respectively.
Considered the most important business magazine in Mexico, Expansión has been evaluating MBA programs on a global basis since 2006. (Visit the Expansión website for interactive Spanish-language ranking tables.)
Among U.S. schools, the Texas MBA Full-Time Program rose one rank to No. 17, upholding the top 20 status it has held since the ranking's inception. Among U.S. public schools, McCombs held steady at No. 4 behind Berkeley, UCLA, and Virginia.
Amadeo Betancourt, MBA '06, a business unit director of special products at Bristol-Myers Squibb Mexico and an alumnus of McCombs' Executive MBA at Mexico City, is highlighted in the Expansión article. The real value of a global MBA, Betancourt says, lies in its multicultural environment "solving a case study with Chinese, Indians, and other nationalities."
Apart from international diversity, Expansión methodology examines salary and employment issues, GMAT averages, faculty degrees and research, and a reputation survey.
