Leeds MBA Programs Advance in U.S. News Rankings

The Full-Time MBA and Evening MBA programs at Leeds School of Business increased in the rankings of public schools in the 2022 Best Graduate Schools rankings by U.S. News & World Report.

The Full-Time MBA program rose to #38 among public business schools, up from #41 last year. Among business schools nationwide, Leeds stands at the #74 spot.

The Evening MBA program shot up to #22 among public business schools nationwide, a 4-spot leap from last year. Among all U.S. business schools, it places at #35.

“I am thrilled that Leeds continues to maintain its place as a top business school, despite the unprecedented challenges of last year. Our dedicated, world-class faculty, staff, business partners and alumni community stepped up to provide our students with the education and opportunities they deserve,” says Leeds Dean Sharon Matusik.  

Two new MBA programs for working professionals are launching in 2021, offering customized formats that provide online and classroom education, with access to Leeds’ powerful global network of alumni and business partners and taught by Leeds’ world-class faculty.

The new Executive MBA is a first-class learning experience for seasoned leaders and executives, with remote coursework enhanced by week-long residencies in Boulder and the Colorado mountains.

The Hybrid MBA shares the same curriculum as the Evening MBA but offers a blended online and in-person format, designed for those who want the flexibility of remote coursework combined with a powerful cohort and classroom experience.

Leeds continues to lead as the #1 business school Colorado and the region, and the MBA programs are a substantial factor in the school’s success. Last fall, in the midst of the pandemic, Leeds welcomed its largest graduate class in history. A total of 445 students enrolled in all of Leeds’ graduate programs—a 19% increase over the 2019 incoming class. Application numbers for 2021 are tracking at more than 30% above last year’s record-breaking incoming class.
