The Financial Times has found that post-graduation career trajectory is rosy for Michigan State University executive MBA alumni. In the publication’s latest ranking of global executive MBA programs, the Broad Executive MBA program was once again ranked among the top five U.S. public programs and among the top 30 worldwide in “career progress.”
The program’s overall ranking remained relatively stable at No. 90 worldwide, coming in among the top five in the Midwest and the top 15 U.S. public programs.
“We channel immense effort into preparing graduates for what comes next when they leave the classroom,” said Glenn Omura, acting associate dean for MBA and professional master’s programs. “I’m proud to see them recognized in the global arena and to see their innovation and creativity shine in their future positions.”
The Financial Times executive MBA ranking is based predominantly on data provided by alumni, particularly regarding their work and earning histories. MBA programs are also surveyed on criteria such as their diversity and international reach. In addition, the number of publications by full-time faculty in each program in a slate of 45 journals is considered. The career progress ranking is determined by comparing graduates’ level of seniority and company size before the MBA to that several years after earning their degree.
