Why UMass Boston?

University Ranking

In 2010, the University of Massachusetts ranked 56th in the Times of London’s Top 200 World University Rankings, which the newspaper describes as “the gold standard for world-class research institutions.”

College of Management’s Standing

UMass Boston’s College of Management is increasingly gaining a reputation as a business school that treats business issues in terms of their broad societal context and implications, consonant with the UMass Boston mission. We are featured as one of the “Best 300 Business Schools” by Princeton Review, and we are rated in the top 100 according to the Aspen Institute’s alternative ranking of MBA programs in Beyond Grey Pinstripes, which is based on integration of social and environmental issues into curricula and research. The College is a signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative to encourage corporate responsibility and sustainability.
