Homecoming and Family Weekend, Oct 12-14, 2023

College of Business' MBA ranked No. 4 Better World MBA nationwide

We did it! Our MBA programs were ranked No. 4 nationwide and No. 7 worldwide in the annual Corporate Knights Better World MBA rankings. We’re incredibly proud to have been recognized among the world’s best for the second year in a row. 

The rankings evaluated 209 business schools across the world and focused on two metrics: what proportion of the curriculum addresses sustainable development principles and the percentage of recent graduates working in “impact organizations." 

It’s a testament to the power of our Business for a Better World vision, and we couldn’t have done it without our faculty, staff, students, alumni and partners. Every day, our Biz Rams community offers proof that it’s possible to use business to drive positive social, environmental and economic change. 

We’re excited to add the Corporate Knights rankings to the long list of awards that our MBA programs have won in recent years: 

  • No. 1 in Colorado for six years in a row — U.S. News and World Report 
  • No. 3 nationwide for class profile — QS Quacquarelli Symonds  
  • No. 4 nationwide Better World MBA — Corporate Knights  
  • No. 7 worldwide Better World MBA — Corporate Knights  
  • No. 11 nationwide for employability — QS Quacquarelli Symonds  

This holiday season, we’re grateful to have so many reasons to celebrate. Thank you for being a part of our Biz Rams community!
