Campus MBA Programs by Faculty Strength

Faculty strength is a hard thing to measure. You need to look at a variety of numbers to get a sense of the access you’ll have to professors inside and outside of the classroom and how qualified they are to teach. You’ll want to look at the number of faculty a program has, the percent of the faculty that are employed full-time versus part-time, and the percentage of the professors who have doctorate degrees. If you plan to enroll in an MBA program rather than just pick up a business book from the shelf at Barnes and Noble, it’s worth digging into these statistics to see what you’re getting for your investment in tuition dollars.
