Two Atlanta business publications have ranked Clayton State’s MBA program among the best in metro Atlanta.

The current issues of both the “Atlanta Business Chronicle” and the “Atlanta Business Journal” both rank the Clayton State MBA program among the best in metro Atlanta.

 The Atlanta Business Chronicle ranked the Clayton State MBA 10th in metro Atlanta among AACSB-accredited programs, while the Atlanta Business Journal ranked the Clayton State MBA fifth in Atlanta.

 “We are elated that the ABC and Atlanta Business Journal have ranked us among the best MBA programs in Atlanta,” says School of Business Assistant Dean – External Relations Dr. Michael Tidwell. “These rankings suggest that the business community is starting to recognize the value of the Clayton State University MBA. In a short period of time we’ve been able to build a program of excellence that educates Atlanta’s current and future business leaders.”

The Clayton State MBA program started in the fall of 2007. By the time the fall 2009 semester starts, the program will have more than 100 students (who are still being admitted for fall 2009) in cohorts based on the main campus in Morrow and at the Clayton State – Fayette instructional site in Peachtree City. In addition, the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia recently gave its approval to Clayton State’s proposal to establish a cohort of the MBA program at the Rockdale Career Academy in Conyers starting in January 2010.
