In the newly released ranking for MBA programs by Poets&Quants, the TCU Neeley School of Business is No. 22 in the world and No. 3 in Texas.

In addition to being named among the top 25 for the world’s Best MBA Programs for Entrepreneurship in 2024, Neeley’s MBA program has increased four spots over the prior year position of No. 26.

The consistent progress in major rankings for TCU Neeley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation department and programs reflects the school’s commitment to excellence, said Will Drover, department chair for Neeley’s Entrepreneurship and Innovation and an associate professor.

“We are proud of our consistent progress in the major rankings, which reflects our commitment to excellence. Our students learn from the best of the best. Our faculty are not only excellent educators, but also leaders in their fields and prolific researchers,” Drover said. “They bring their expertise and insights into their classes and programs, where they challenge and inspire our students to become innovators and entrepreneurs.”

Neeley students pursing an MBA gain the knowledge and skills to lead the future of business through coursework with real-world application and programs where they can put their learning to work immediately.

Innovative initiatives like the Horned Frog Investment Network and CREATE – powered by the Shaddock Seed Fund, transform applied learning experiences, said Rodney D’Souza, managing director for the Institute for Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Davis Family Entrepreneur in Residence.

“Students graduate with hands-on knowledge, having already made tangible impacts in the business world,” said D’Souza. “This theory-applied approach, combined with the unparalleled strength of our partnerships and alumni network, ensures that our graduates don't just enter the industry, they elevate it.”

In addition to the Poets&Quants ranking, TCU Neeley has been recognized in multiple ranking announcements this school year with special attention to entrepreneurship. In September, the U.S. News & World Report 2024 ranking for Best Colleges listed Neeley tied at No. 14 for the best college for entrepreneurship, an increase of 11 spots since last year. In Bloomberg Businessweek rankings for Full-time MBA programs, TCU’s graduate program ranked No. 12 in the nation and No. 2 in Texas for entrepreneurship.
