Chaifetz School Honored in 2023 U.S. News "Best Graduate Schools" Rankings

The Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business at Saint Louis University has earned high recognition for its graduate business programs in U.S. News and World Report’s “Best Business School” rankings for 2023. The rankings were released today as part of the publication’s annual “America’s Best Graduate Schools” guide.

The Chaifetz School was recognized in this year’s rankings as a top school for MBA specialties in three disciplines based solely on peer assessment. The school was ranked in the top 10 for International Business (No. 8) for the third time in the last four years. Entrepreneurship (No. 12) and Supply Chain Management (No. 13) continued to be ranked in the top 20. 

“We are honored that our AACSB-accredited peers continue to see the Chaifetz School as a leader in these disciplines,” said Barnali Gupta, Ph.D., Edward Jones Dean of the Chaifetz School of Business, “and we are even more excited about what the future holds for our school and our students.”

The school’s Professional MBA program remained in the top 100 rankings for part-time MBA programs (No. 83), while the One-Year MBA program remained a top 100 full-time MBA program (No. 93). This is the second top 100 distinction for the One-Year MBA program in 2022, coming just two months after Poets&Quants ranked the program on its own list of the top MBA programs in the country (No. 77). 

U.S. News rankings for full-time and part-time MBA programs are based on a variety of factors, including admission selectivity, corporate recruiter assessment, graduate placement success and peer assessment. 

“As a Jesuit school, it is our mission to harness the power of business for good,” said Gupta. “These rankings are a testament to the work of our world-renowned faculty to equip our graduate students with the skills and knowledge they need to be transformational, ethical leaders in business.”
