(Boston) — Boston University’s Executive MBA Program has been ranked number one in New England and 20th globally according to The Wall Street Journal’s 2010 survey of top EMBA Programs.

The 2010 Wall Street Journal ranking of Executive MBA programs was compiled by surveying thousands of students and hundreds of companies about the quality of EMBA programs and how well they deliver on improving management and leadership skills.

The rankings are based on three components: a survey of recent EMBA graduates (BU 14th); a survey of companies familiar with EMBA programs (BU 27th); and surveys of recent graduates and companies to determine how well schools impart crucial management and leadership skills (BU 18th).

The BU EMBA program placed in the top third of reported survey elements, including program quality, faculty quality, classmate quality, and immediately applicable coursework. It also had the sixth lowest total program cost overall and the lowest tuition of all U.S. private universities listed.

“We are proud to offer a very high quality, economical Executive MBA Program for our students, and heartened by the satisfaction of our EMBA alumni,” said Kenneth W. Freeman, Allen Questrom Professor and Dean of Boston University School of Management.

“Students are able to provide immediate value to their organizations by being exposed to a rich management curriculum specifically designed for executives, while gaining perspective from classmates in diverse industries,” said Janice Dolnick, Director of BU’s Executive MBA Program.
