Terry’s EMBA Jumped Eight Spots in Worldwide Ranking

In The Economist’s most recent ranking of Executive MBA programs, University of Georgia Terry College of Business ranked number 14 worldwide. In the previous ranking, Terry’s program came in the number 22 spot worldwide.

“We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the very best Executive MBA programs in the world,” said Richard Daniels, director of Executive and Professional MBA Programs at Terry. “Our focus on leadership development, international experience and harnessing the Terry College network has proven to be particularly effective in ensuring that our graduates are successful.”

When ranking the schools, The Economist allowed schools to classify their own programs as EMBAs. The criteria was, as long as the program was part-time and students had significantly more work experience than their full-time MBA counterparts, it could be considered an EMBA.

The data was collected with questionnaires. One was filled out by the schools themselves and the other was distributed to students and alumni from the schools’ last three graduating classes. The two broad measures used for the ranking are personal development/educational experience and career development. Both categories are equally weighted.

Terry’s EMBA program is an 18-month program that offers mid- to senior-level mangers an opportunity to develop their leadership and international business skills as well expand their network of contacts. The program is broken down into weekend interaction sessions, distance learning and residency weeks.

The program consists of 48 credit hours comprised of 16 courses over an 18-month period. Students first start by completing online tutorials in the fundamentals of business. The program is then broken up in two week long residencies at UGA’s Athens campus, 21 weekend sessions at the Atlanta campus and a 12-day international residency.
