Chapman University’s full-time MBA program—in the Argyros School of Business and Economics— is ranked in the top 100 in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2016 ranking of full-time MBA programs. Appearing as number 83 overall for the Best Graduate Business School, this is the second time Chapman’s full-time MBA program is ranked in the top 100 – the first time being in 2012 when it was ranked at 97.

“Being ranked in the top 100 for the second time in the full-time program’s short history validates the great work being done by our MBA Programs’ faculty, staff and students; and also by our Career Services staff and Operations Administrator,” said Reggie Gilyard, dean of the Argyros School of Business and Economics, Chapman University. “This is an important step in our growth and we aspire to continue moving up in the rankings in the years to come.”
