The small, discussion-led classroom setting promotes a synergy of ideas, creativity, and solutions to the challenges facing business today. The program helps students make connections with members of the business community and Boler alumni both in the classroom and with networking opportunities. The U.S. News part-time MBA ranking is based on five factors: average peer assessment score, average GMAT and GRE scores of students entering the program in 2015, work experience, undergraduate GPA, and the percentage of MBA program students who attend the program on a part-time basis. 296 of the nation's 344 part-time MBA programs met those criteria and were included in this ranking. To be eligible to be included in the rankings, schools must also be accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AASCB). The Boler School of Business maintains a dual accreditation in both business and accounting, placing the school in the top 11% of the business programs in the United States and the top 5% of business programs in the world.
