As the Broad College of Business Executive MBA program celebrates its 50th anniversary, it can applaud another achievement: placing among the world’s top 50 executive MBA programs in the Economist’s recently released ranking.

The Broad EMBA was ranked No. 46 overall and No. 30 among U.S. programs in its inaugural inclusion in this ranking of executive MBA programs.

Moreover, the MSU Executive MBA is among the top 15 programs globally for the career progression of graduates—and No. 11 for the percentage of alumni who have been promoted or grown their companies since graduation.

“It’s great to see the success our alumni have achieved within only a few years of completing their executive MBA education,” said Cheri DeClercq, assistant dean for MBA programs. “Our program is tightly focused on the core competencies that provide a strategic edge, helping our students make business happen at an ever higher level.”

The Broad Executive MBA is the nation’s oldest public university EMBA program, turning 50 this year.

The Economist executive MBA ranking focuses predominantly on the educational experience students have and the career progression they experience as a result, particularly in terms of salary. It is based on data provided by schools, current students, and alumni. This is the publication’s second biennial ranking of such programs.
