The Economist Ranks University of Miami Executive MBA Program Among World’s Best
July 18, 2013
The Economist, one of the most widely recognized current affairs publications, has ranked the University of Miami School of Business Administration No. 21 among U.S. business schools for its Executive MBA program. The magazine, in its July 20 edition, also ranked the School’s program No. 38 worldwide.
This is the first time The Economist has published a ranking of Executive MBA programs. The rankings are based on the quality of each School’s Executive MBA students, student diversity, the quality of the faculty, the quality of the program, and career development factors such as how well graduates have progressed in their careers and their salary growth.
The rankings by The Economist place the University of Miami Executive MBA program as the No. 1 Executive MBA program in South Florida, a position the School’s program has held for the past several years in annual rankings published by the Financial Times.
The University of Miami Executive MBA program, delivered at both the main campus and in Puerto Rico, is designed to enhance the general business, critical thinking, decision-making and strategic skills of business executives. Emphasis is placed on global management practices; global markets; understanding information, finance, and people; and leadership development. Classes are held on Saturdays over 23 months. The School also offers an Executive MBA in Health Sector Management and Policy program, delivered one weekend per month over 23 months; and a Spanish-language Global Executive MBA program, delivered in two-week modules over 18 months.
