Rollins’ Crummer Graduate School of Business ranks among the nation’s best business schools and in the top 5 MBA programs in Florida.

Rollins’ Crummer Graduate School of Business has been listed among the top 5 MBA programs in Florida and one of the country’s best MBA programs for 2023—a coveted group of just 68 schools—by Abound, a college guidance system for degree-seeking adults.

For the initial vetting process, the ranking body looks at MBA-specific accreditation—like Crummer’s accreditation through the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), one of the world’s most selective and rigorous evaluations for business schools—as well as nationally corroborated data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard, and the Center for Measuring University Performance.

The criteria then evaluate the country’s best business schools based on the organization’s selection qualifications in the areas of accessibility, affordability, acceleration, and advancement. The rankings go on to consider faculty credentials, program flexibility, and the quality of student-professor relationships, as mentorship in higher education is a proven driver of success.

With so many part-time programs and the availability of evening, weekend, or online classes, Crummer is a model in flexible scheduling. The Flex MBA and Executive MBA programs are designed to fit busy lifestyles, making it possible for working professionals to earn an MBA from a premier institution, all while delivering personal, high-touch, and customized experiences. Thanks to Rollins’ Accelerated Management Program, ambitious students can earn a top-ranked undergraduate business degree and a top-ranked MBA in just five years.

Inclusion on the 2023 list of best MBA programs also speaks to Crummer making a graduate education financially feasible, offering a variety of financial aid options, including scholarships and special funding programs for veterans. Scholarships are awarded to students with career goals in diverse areas of interest and fields, from finance and marketing to science and health care. For Executive MBA students, Crummer is proud to be able to award three Martin Bell Scholarships to nonprofit professionals who have demonstrated progressive leadership experience within the nonprofit sector and have created positive impacts both in their workplace and community.

High rankings across multiple categories continue to stand as a testament to Crummer’s core values and commitment to lifelong learning as exemplified through experiential and collaborative activities. Essential to acceleration and advancement, Crummer upholds learning through peer-to-peer, faculty-to-peer, and postgraduate experiences.
