The Argyros School ranks fourth among private schools in California. Corporate recruiters ranked the Argyros School 30th, average GMAT ranked 58th, and placement rankings increased dramatically.

“Our great connections in the business community and increasingly influential faculty have been the keys for us.  This combination has led to more talented and prepared graduates and great employment opportunities”, said Thomas Turk, Ph.D., Dean of the Argyros School of Business and Economics at Chapman University. “We are especially proud of our evaluations from the corporate recruiters.  They validate the quality of our students and the value they add to the work environment.”

Established in 2005, Chapman’s full-time MBA program connects talented students with renowned faculty and influential business leaders in a personalized setting.  Chapman’s full-time MBA equips professionals to think strategically, analyze carefully, and act entrepreneurially.
