The Shidler College of Business at the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa has been named among the nation’s best MBA programs in U.S. News’ annual list of Best Graduate Schools.

The Shidler College of Business Full-Time MBA program ranked 107 in the overall ranking of graduate business schools out of 437 accredited business schools considered by U.S. News. The Part-Time MBA program was ranked 105 along with the University of Massachusetts.

“This is really exciting news for our MBA programs,” said V. Vance Roley, Dean of the Shidler Business of College, in a written statement yesterday. “We continue to make improvements in all academic areas and have invested substantially in recruiting the best faculty and students worldwide. Being listed among the top 25 percent of AACSB accredited graduate business programs is very encouraging. I am hopeful that we will continue to improve our rankings in the future as more people recognize the quality of our programs.”

Last year, the College’s undergraduate program was ranked 135 on U.S. News list of best undergraduate business programs out of more than 600 AACSB schools nationwide. The undergraduate international business program was ranked 15th in the U.S. News specialty area.


The UH Shidler College of Business is the only graduate program in the State of Hawai‘i accredited by AACSB International.


Established in 1949 as the College of Business Administration, the College was named in 2006 after alumnus Jay H. Shidler, founder and managing partner of The Shidler Group. The Shidler College of Business specializes in international management education and has an Asia-Pacific focus.
