Top MBA Coverage: St. Louis and Kansas City Business Journals

In the annual St. Louis Business Journal rankings of largest MBA programs, Webster's MBA program was ranked as having the largest local enrollment for the 2015-16 academic year. The ranking appears in the Dec. 4 print edition, online, and in the Business Journal's 2016 Book of Lists.

Separately, the Kansas City Business Journal's "Top Area MBA Programs" feature quoted Webster Kansas City director Cass Butler's advice on what students should look for in an MBA program.

Another important and often overlooked criterion is the composition of the peer group and the overall classroom experience at the institution," Butler said.

"It is worthwhile to explore how the faculty engage the students. Is there a lot of group work, lectures or active learning? Make sure the institution selected has a teaching model that will best fit a learner’s style."
