Texas MBA: Full-Time No. 17, Working Professional No. 7 in U.S. News Rankings

Text: Texas MBA No. 17

Holding steady at No. 17, the McCombs School of Business Texas MBA Full-Time Program confirmed its venerable top 20 position in the 2019 edition of U.S. News & World Report's survey of the nation's best graduate schools of business.

The Texas MBA has counted itself among the top 20 programs in 26 of the past 27 years. For the fourth year in a row, Texas again took fifth place among public schools, behind the University of California, Berkeley (7), University of Michigan (7), University of Virginia (13), and UCLA (16).

Working Professional MBA Reaches No. 7

In the ranking of best part-time MBA programs, McCombs rose three ranks to No. 7.

The working professional MBA programs at McCombs — which include the Texas Evening MBA, the Texas MBA at Houston, and the Texas MBA at Dallas/Fort Worth — have held top 10 status for the past nine years.

Specialty Rankings

The U.S. News ranking also considers strengths in subject areas. Few schools in the nation show the breadth of performance in the business specialty rankings achieved by McCombs, which ties Berkeley, Northwestern, and Wharton with nine top 20 placements. (Only Stanford and Michigan manage to make all 10.)

Three McCombs business specialties landed in the top 10:

• Accounting: No. 1 (12th year in a row and 26th year in a row among the top five)
• Information Systems: No. 4 (26th year straight in the top five)
• Entrepreneurship: No. 9 (22nd consecutive year in the top 10)

Other specialties with top honors include:

• Production/Operations: No. 12
• Finance: No. 13
• Management: No. 15
• Marketing: No. 17
• Supply Chain/Logistics: No. 18
• International: No. 20
