A Rockhurst University Helzberg School of Management program has once again been named one of the nation’s top 20, according to U.S. News and World Report rankings released on Wednesday.

The Management MBA program achieved its highest-ever ranking, climbing to No. 16 on the 2017 Best Graduate Schools list. Rockhurst tied with Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, and fellow Jesuit institution University of Detroit Mercy in Detroit, Michigan.
