First full ranking of part-time MBA programs features Weatherhead’s innovative curriculum

CLEVELAND—The Part-Time MBA program at Case Western Reserve University’s Weatherhead School of Management placed 31st in the nation in the 2011 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools,” released Thursday, April 15, 2010.

The ranking is based on peer surveys of deans and senior faculty at graduate business programs accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business, who are asked to compare 426 schools nationwide.

Offering the same world-class graduate education as the full-time program, Weatherhead’s Part-Time MBA is specially designed to accommodate working professionals. Weatherhead has consistently been a world leader in offering innovative methodologies and unique research perspectives to the field of management education. This pioneering academic work and the ever-changing business environment have recently led to a further recalibration of the Part-Time MBA. The program centers around two themes: Manage by Designing—a revolutionary reinterpretation of management culture and curriculum in light of design thinking—and Sustainable Enterprise—a response to the pressing environmental and social issues of our time as opportunities for businesses to succeed in both making a profit and making a difference.

“We are delighted that our innovative course of study, designed for busy, ambitious professionals, has been recognized in U.S. News & World Report’s ranking of part-time MBA programs,” says Weatherhead Dean Mohan Reddy. “We are proud of our program and curriculum, and believe that our transdisciplinary themes, Manage by Designing and Sustainable Enterprise, provide our students with the tools to make a significant difference in their workplace and their community.”
