Once again, Cal State San Bernardino’s Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration has been listed among the top business schools in the world, according to CEO Magazine’s 2020 Global rankings of MBA programs from 27 countries. 
The Jack H. Brown College was listed in Tier One of the MBA programs in the world, and ranked 46th out of the top 70 in online MBA programs in the world, according to CEO Magazine.
“These rankings recognize the hard work and dedication of our amazing and talented faculty and staff to create and deliver exceptional and challenging MBA programs,” said Lawrence Rose, dean of the Jack H. Brown College. “It is through these innovative programs that help us develop and graduate the future business leaders and entrepreneurs in our communities.”
According to its news release, CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools from around the globe since it first launched in 2008. In 2012 the publication launched its annual Global MBA Rankings, profiling MBA, Executive MBA and Online MBA programs.
The Jack H. Brown College has been listed among the top in the magazine’s ranking for the past five years.
For its 2020 rankings, CEO Magazine reached out to business schools across North America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the BRICS, an association of five major emerging national economies: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, and received data from 161 schools, offering 303 different programs in 27 countries (77 online, 87 executive MBA and 139 full-time and part- time MBA programs). The ranking represents not only the largest number of schools that have participated to date, but also the highest number of individual programs.
The magazine used a ranking system entirely geared and weighted toward fact-based criteria that includes the quality of faculty, international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty to student ratio, price, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity and delivery methods.
