COLLEGE PARK, Md. (Jan. 29, 2016) — A new ranking by the Financial Times, released Monday, recognizes the full-time MBA program at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business as No. 22 in the nation and No. 51 in the world. 

The Financial Times Global MBA Ranking 2016 also puts Smith at No. 13 for placement success, a ranking of the effectiveness of the school’s career services in supporting student recruitment, as rated by alumni.

The Financial Times also ranked the Smith School No. 23 for research, up from No. 26 in last year’s ranking. This is calculated from the number of articles published by current full-time faculty members in 45 selected academic and practitioner journals between January 2013 and October 2015, weighted relative to the faculty’s size.

These ranking follow another top global ranking from the Economist in October 2015, where Smith’s full-time MBA was ranked No. 28 in the United States and No. 42 in the world. See a full list of the Smith School’s rankings here.
