La Salle University’s full-time MBA program ranks No. 1 in the nation for job-placement rate, with 100% of graduates securing jobs within three months of graduation.
U.S. News & World Report ranked La Salle as the best in the country in MBA job-placement rate as part of its 2023 U.S. News Best Graduate Schools report, unveiled March 29. The 100% job-placement rate among La Salle MBA alumni tied the University with programs at Michigan State, Duquesne, Pacific Lutheran, and South Carolina universities.
This marked an increase from U.S. News’ 2022 report, within which La Salle’s three-month job placement rate was among the best in the country at 94.1%. U.S. News ranked La Salle’s full-time MBA program just outside the top 100 in the country.
This recognition for the full-time MBA program shows just one way La Salle prepares students for their careers following graduation, said Joseph Ugras, Ph.D., associate professor of accounting and interim dean of La Salle’s School of Business.
“Our MBA program prepares students to become business leaders in their communities and across the world, with 100% of them hired by highly respected companies and institutions. This ranking from U.S. News demonstrates how our rigorous curriculum translates to professional careers in business. Our MBA program generates a return on investment that rivals the best that U.S. business schools have to offer,” Ugras said.
