Boston University School of Management’s Executive MBA program ranked 30th globally and 24th nationally on Bloomberg Businessweek’s Best Executive MBA Programs list. This is a strong gain from the prior ranking in 2011, when the program placed in the second tier.

This biennial ranking measures graduate satisfaction with their EMBA experience, including teaching quality, curriculum, and support, as well as incorporates opinions from program directors of leading EMBA programs. Recent program graduates rated their Boston University EMBA experience 26th in the world, giving an A+ for curriculum. In addition, Boston University EMBA students are tied for the most work experience of any ranked school at 17 years.

“The Boston University EMBA program provides accomplished executives with a challenging, integrated experience that engages them in key forces transforming our global economy,” said Janice Dolnick, director of the EMBA program. “As our School celebrates its centennial, we are pleased to see this tremendous external recognition of the strength of the EMBA program and its students.”

This ranking of Boston University’s EMBA program, an 18-month program designed for high-achieving professionals, continues a trend of external recognition as the School enters its centennial year. Last month, the EMBA program was ranked 1st in New England by the Financial Times. Additionally, in July, EMBA was named 19th among US-based programs by the The Economist. For the Businessweek ranking, a survey of program graduates from 2009, 2011, and 2013 contributed to 65 percent of the ranking, with the final 35 percent stemming from a survey of program directors.
