UW-River Falls MBA Program Moves Up in Listing of Top Programs

February 12, 2016 -- Moving up two spaces from 15 to 13, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls Master of Business Administration program has once again landed a prestigious spot on Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal's list of top MBA programs in the state.

The UW-River Falls MBA program is characterized by its flexibility for working adults, with evening classes offered at the Hudson Center in Hudson just 20 minutes from the central Twin Cities. The program's location in Hudson is an easy commute for MBA-seeking students from both Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Of the 17 universities receiving accolades, UW-River Falls is the only university located in the eastern metro area.

"We are excited about the growth of our AACSB accredited MBA program, one of only three AACSB accredited programs in the metropolitan area," said Michael Fronmueller, dean of the UWRF College of Business and Economics. "UW-River Falls has offered a high-quality program for over fifteen years and many of our graduates have benefited from their MBA experience and education.  The program continues to grow with new students from the region as well as international students. We see a strong interest in our program, characterized by small class sizes, convenient scheduling, and high value for our students."

Students can complete the program in as few as 18 months. The program develops leadership, change management, global competence, and ethical decision-making skills.
