For four years in the row, the TCU MBA program is ranked one of the best in the world according to The Economist, at 63 in the world and 38 in the U.S., and again this year is second in the world for MBA faculty quality and in the top 25 for career services.

Of the top five MBA programs in The Economist 2015 ranking, none rank in the top 20 for faculty quality: Chicago Booth (1 overall, 21 faculty quality), Virginia Darden (2 overall, 22 faculty quality), Dartmouth Tuck (3 overall, 35 faculty quality), Harvard (4 overall, 59 faculty quality) and HEC Paris (5 overall, 75 faculty quality). 

“Our professors who teach in the TCU MBA program are indeed world class. They are top scholars who give full attention to the academic, personal and professional development of each student,” O. Homer Erekson, the John V. Roach Dean of the TCU Neeley School of Business, said.  

The TCU Neeley School of Business also ranks in the top 25 two years in a row for MBA career services, this year at 22 in the world. 

“The main reason people go back to school for an MBA degree is to enhance their careers, so to continue to be ranked highly among all the business schools in the world for career services demonstrates the quality of the education, experience, skills, networking and professional development that TCU MBA students receive,” Bill Cron, associate dean of graduate programs for the TCU Neeley School, said. 

The Economist bases 80 percent of the MBA rankings on faculty quality, career services, alumni network, educational experience, salary increase and other criteria, and 20 percent on survey responses from students and recent graduates.
