Financial Times Ranks Executive MBA Program Among World's Best with Top Honors for Women Students/Faculty
October 19, 2009
“We are very pleased to see the School’s Executive MBA program recognized among the best in a field that includes more than 300 programs around the world,” said Dean Barbara E. Kahn. “It is especially noteworthy that the School has been cited for the high quality and diversity of our faculty and for the diversity of our student body, which are among the strengths that set the School’s Executive MBA program apart.”
The School’s research ranking is based on the number of faculty publications in leading academic and practitioner journals, while the women student and faculty rankings are based on the percentage of women in each group. The newest EMBA class is 40 percent female and the School’s faculty is 39 percent female. The Financial Times EMBA rankings are also based on a survey of the EMBA class that graduated three years ago. That survey measures how successful and satisfied EMBA graduates have been in their careers since earning the degree.
The women faculty and student rankings follow a report earlier this month by The Princeton Review, which ranked the School of Business No. 6 in the nation for providing the greatest opportunity for minority MBA students and a report in September by Hispanic Business magazine which ranked the School No. 3 in the nation for Hispanic MBA students.
The School’s EMBA program, which is designed for accomplished professionals with management experience, has been offered since 1973. In addition to the traditional EMBA program, the School offers an EMBA in Health Sector Management and Policy program, which is designed for those in the health care field. The program, delivered both on and off campus, was expanded to include Puerto Rico in October 2009.
