What a difference a year makes. The University of Tennessee’s full-time Master of Business Administration program is among the best MBA programs in the country, according to Bloomberg Businessweek’s recently released 2012 rankings.
UT’s program is No. 60 overall and No. 26 among U.S. public universities that offer full-time MBA programs.
Last year UT did not make the rankings.
“The Businessweek ranking recognizes the overall quality of our full-time MBA program and reflect’s the program’s contribution to the university’s goal of becoming a Top 25 institution,” Annette Ranft, associate dean for academic programs at the UT College of Business, said in a news release.
The deadline for the fourth annual University of Tennessee Business Plan Competition is less than two weeks away.
UT undergraduate students with the next great business idea have until March 2 to file a concept summary to the Anderson Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the College of Business Administration.
A pair of budding businessmen from Knoxville and one from Marietta, Ga. have been selected for a new University of Tennessee MBA program that will cover the cost of tuition while helping the trio launch new businesses.
Paul Haymore from Marietta and Matt Parton and Brian Mohney from Knoxville are the first pariticipants in the MBA Entrepreneur Fellow program at the UT College of Business Administration. Each will receive $30,000 scholarships to cover costs associated with the three-semester program.
