The Neeley School of Business’ graduate program is tied at No. 63 out of the 464 graduate business schools surveyed by U.S. News & World Report for the 2016 Best Graduate Business Programs ranking, up from No. 76 last year.

The ranking, released March 10, lists the full-time TCU MBA program as having a high percentage of full-time graduates employed three months after graduation, 92.1%, and an average starting salary of $90,117 with bonus.

“This U.S. News ranking, along with the full-time TCU MBA’s recent ranking of No. 56 in the U.S. for veterans by Military Times and No. 51 in the world by Expansion, Mexico’s largest business magazine, indicates the overall excellence of TCU MBA students, faculty, alumni and the quality of a TCU business education,” said Bill Cron, senior associate dean for graduate programs at TCU’s Neeley School of Business.
