2022 was the sixth year in a row that CEO Magazine has ranked the Sawyer Business School MBA as 'Tier 1' in its global rankings.

For the sixth year running, the Master of Business Administration program at Suffolk University’s Sawyer Business School has been ranked Tier #1 by CEO Magazine, which published their 2022 rankings in March.

“Our goal has always been to prepare our students to succeed in the highly competitive global marketplace,” said Amy Zeng, dean of the Sawyer Business School. “To be ranked as one of the best in the world again in 2022 is a noteworthy achievement.”
