“The Economist” ranks Neeley Executive MBA 21st in the world

In The Economist‘s first ranking of executive MBA programs, the Neeley School of Business at TCU ranks No. 21 in the world. The Executive MBA programs are ranked on personal development/educational experience and career development.

“This ranking reflects the exceptional quality of TCU EMBA students and alumni, as well as the dedication of our faculty and staff to building students’ leadership competencies to be even more successful in today’s dynamic, global business environment,” said Dr. Nancy Nix, executive director of the Executive MBA program at the Neeley School of Business at TCU.

TCU’s Executive MBA is an accredited 16-month program designed for successful executives, entrepreneurs and high-potential managers with a focus on developing more strategic business leaders. The average age of TCU EMBA students for the past few years is 39, with an average of 11 years of managerial experience. Classes take place on alternating Fridays and Saturdays on the TCU campus, taught by respected faculty.

“We have built an outstanding EMBA program with expert faculty, one-on-one leadership coaching and exceptional learning experiences,” said O. Homer Erekson, John V. Roach Dean of the Neeley School of Business at TCU. “It is especially rewarding to have this global recognition for our EMBA students and alumni.”

The Economist collected data using two questionnaires. One questionnaire was for business schools to submit information such as student work experience, faculty expertise, student salaries before and after the program, alumni promotions and number of overseas assignments required. The second questionnaire was circulated to current students and alumni from the last three graduating classes to rate classmates, faculty, facilities and more. More than 8,400 questionnaires were completed. To see the complete ranking, go to www.economist.com/whichmba.
