SAN MARCOS, Texas — CEO Magazine has ranked Texas State University's McCoy College of Business master of business administration (MBA) degree in Tier One of its 2024 Global MBA Rankings.

Tier One is the publication's highest ranking category for MBA programs.

"We are proud to see our MBA program recognized as one of the top programs in the world," said Dr. Sanjay Ramchander, dean of the McCoy College of Business. "This achievement is a testament to the quality of our students, faculty, and staff at McCoy College."

McCoy College offers two MBA program options. The Flex MBA is customizable, allowing students to attend either full-time or part-time, with the ability to change as needs evolve. The program also offers optional concentrations that can be pursued to further specialize your skillset. The Cohort MBA is a full-time program in which students can complete their degree in just 16 months.

CEO Magazine's rankings are designed to aid prospective students in evaluating MBA programs in North America and around the world. According to the publication's website, its objective is to identify schools that connect exceptional quality with great return on investment.

"However, not all MBAs are created equal, which makes putting together a shortlist a lot more challenging, but this is the point at which we can help," the magazine’s rankings site states. "We look beyond the marketing brochures and ad campaigns and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA: the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender parity and more."

CEO Magazine uses a ranking system entirely geared and weighted to fact-based criteria, aiming to provide potential students with a performance benchmark for those schools under review.

Full rankings are available on the CEO Magazine website. ✯
