By From page B1 | April 03, 2013

Sacramento State’s MBA programs continue to solidify their reputations for the quality of their instruction and the high caliber of business professionals they produce.

U.S. News & World Report recently ranked Sacramento State’s part-time MBA program second among all CSU campuses, with San Diego State first. Nationally, Sacramento State is ranked 125th out of 300 colleges. Sacramento State’s part-time MBA program consists of evening classes designed primarily for those working during the day.

“The ranking serves as a nice external acknowledgement of what we do,” says College of Business Administration Dean Sanjay Varshney. “It is a nice recognition of the extraordinary hard work that goes into making a very market driven and competitive program, such as the MBA, successful.”

In addition, the college’s EMBA program – an accelerated, one-year program that caters to business executives by holding classes on weekends – has its largest cohort for a spring semester, with 35 participants compared to a typical 30 students.

The spring 2013 group also has the highest average salary of incoming cohorts. “For the first time the average class salary went up from the low $90,000 to $104,000 for this group,” Varshney said, adding that the salary increase indicates the program is attracting even stronger candidates.
