Rawls College of Business Grad and Undergrad Programs Nationally Recognized

Two national publications have ranked programs in Texas Tech University’s Rawls College of Business as front-runners in their areas of education.

Modern Healthcare's 2008 survey of business graduate schools for physician-executives has ranked Rawls' MBA for physicians program at 19 among schools offering similar MBAs. Programs are ranked on five factors: length of time to complete (the shorter the program, the higher the rank); cost of total tuition (the lower the tuition, the higher the rank); number of days students must spend on campus (the fewer the days, the higher the rank); age in years of each program (the older the program, the higher the rank); and number of total graduates. The five rankings are totaled, with the lowest score getting the highest final rank. Rawls College undergraduate programs were ranked 77th in the 2009 Business Week annual ratings of programs. This places the Rawls College's Bachelor of Business Administration programs in the top 5th of all accredited business programs. In 2007 the Rawls College was ranked 83. In 2008 too few seniors responded for ranking.  See the 2009 rankings at www.businessweek.com/bschools/rankings/. Texas Tech's undergraduate business programs were rated ahead of Oklahoma (81), Colorado (83), Iowa State (92), Nebraska (96), and Oklahoma State (Unrated).  The ranking was very near Missouri (74) and Iowa (76), but behind the University of Texas at Austin (10) and Texas A&M University (37).
