For the fourth year in a row, The University of Tampa has been named to Bloomberg Businessweek's ranking of the best U.S. business schools of 2019-2020.


Frank Ghannadian, dean of the Sykes College of Business, said the College of Business attracts students from around the globe and is renowned for graduating students who make an immediate impact in the business community and within their countries.

The list is based on data compiled from more than 9,000 students, 14,920 alumni, 900 corporate recruiters, and compensation and job-placement data from each school.

In the ranking, students and alumni were quoted describing UT’s strengths as:

  • “Having strong professors that genuinely cared about helping you learn and grow professionally.”
  • “Small class sizes allow interaction with all classmates and professors.”
  • “Meeting a lot of people from diverse cultures, working in group projects with different people in different stages in their career, and having a lot of presentations and solving real-world problems.”

In addition to the overall ranking, schools are separately ranked on four component indexes — compensation, networking, learning and entrepreneurship — providing students more ways to evaluate what schools have to offer them.

There are joint M.S./MBA degrees, as well as part-time, full-time and executive MBA schedules.

Frank Ghannadian, dean of the Sykes College of Business, said the College of Business attracts students from around the globe and is renowned for graduating students who make an immediate impact in the business community and within their countries. 

“I’m proud of all the business students who work extremely hard to reach their goals, faculty who are outstanding teachers and scholars, and the vibrant business community that supports the College of Business every day,” Ghannadian said.
