Questrom EMBA Ranked No. 1 in New England
The Executive MBA program at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business has been ranked no. 1 in New England by The Economist. The program was also ranked no. 49 in the country by the same publication. These rankings are the second of the bi-annual rankings of EMBA programs done by The Economist. The Economist ranks programs on personal development/educational experience and career development.
In order to complete the rankings, schools with EMBA programs classified their own programs as EMBA. A program can be classified as an Executive MBA program if it is a part-time program that is designed for students who have significantly more work experience than those who are completing their full-time MBAs.
The rankings were based on data that was collected through web-based surveys. One questionnaire was filled out by business schools. These surveys included questions on the details of students and faculty, the number of overseas assignments required and statistics on alumni. The second survey was given to current students and alumni from the last three graduating classes of the surveyed schools. Seven thousand questionnaires were completed.
The Executive MBA program at the Questrom School of Business is an 18-month part-time program that begins in January. Students in the program have an average of 15 years of work experience and 9 years of managerial experience. The EMBA program at Questrom is focused around five different modules.
