Students looking for the highest income return from their tuition investment should consider the University of Arizona Eller College of Management Master of Business Administration (MBA) program, according to the latest rankings from U.S. News and World Report.

The authority on best grad schools has ranked the Eller MBA program sixth in the nation for return on investment.

The average salary and signing bonus for Eller MBA students within three months of graduation was $100,850 in 2015. The average student in the Eller MBA program graduated with just over $32,000 in debt. That’s a 3.1 to 1 salary to debt ratio.

The Eller College of Management MBA program ranked No. 60 overall and No. 29 among public programs in the U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Graduate Schools issue.

Eller’s MIS specialty ranked No. 3 among public programs, and the McGuire Center for Entrepreneurship ranked No. 5 among public programs in the same ranking. 

In September, U.S. News and World Report released its 2017 Best Colleges issue, in which Eller’s undergraduate program moved up from No. 22 last year to No. 19 this year among business schools nationwide. The College is ranked No. 9 among public programs, reentering the top 10 for the first time since 2007.
