Clayton State MBA Program Recognized by Atlanta Business Chronicle, Atlanta Business Journal

One of the signs of an academic program coming of age is public recognition.

Clayton State University’s AACSB-accredited School of Business if justifiably proud of its MBA program, which graduated its first cohort of more than 30 students this past May, and which continues to grow, both in numbers and locations.

And, it turns out that public recognition for the MBA program is growing at well. 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.

“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.”

It is indeed a short period. 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, 1064 Culpepper Dr., Conyers, Ga., starting in January 2010.

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.
