Lincoln (Neb.) - June 19, 1998 - The master of business administration program at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln College of Business Administration was one of 13 nationwide to receive an "outstanding" rating in a study published in a recent edition of the Journal of Business and Management. The study's author, Professor Patrick R. McMullen of the University of Maine, rated 188 accredited MBA programs for statistical efficiency based on tuition, average class size, graduates' starting salaries and admission standards. Some of the other MBA programs listed as outstanding include Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of California at Berkeley, the University of Chicago, the University of Florida and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. "The benefits reaped from attending and graduating from these programs generally justify the sacrifices necessary to attend them," McMullen concluded. "It is good to know that the MBA students in the College of Business Administration are receiving excellent value for their investment," said Cynthia Milligan, dean of the college. "Tuition, class size, average entrance examination scores of the students, the exclusivity of the program and the hiring salaries of our MBA graduates were all evaluated. Nebraskans can be proud that our MBA program measured as one of the best in the nation in this objective study."
