In the 2017 Financial Times executive MBA rankings released today, the Broad College of Business Executive MBA reached new heights, ranking among the top 10 U.S. public programs. Among all U.S. programs, Broad’s EMBA moved up four places to #27, with an overall global ranking of #81.

FT Executive MBA Ranking 2017The ranking is based predominantly on data provided by alumni three years after graduation, specifically focusing on income and career growth.

In that timespan, Financial Times reports that Broad’s Class of 2014 has seen salaries increase by an average of 58 percent, and more than three-quarters of graduates said they achieved their goals from pursuing the degree.

Findings reinforce what those students reported once they finished the program: more than 97 percent would recommend the program to a friend or colleague, average annual earnings increased $16,396 during the program, and more than 40 percent of graduates were promoted before they completed the program.

“We are always pleased to see the successes and quality of our graduates recognized,” said Cheri DeClercq, assistant dean for MBA programs. “As the oldest public university EMBA in the U.S., we have spent more than 50 years innovating and evolving a curriculum that assists students in transforming their high potential into high performance.”

Financial Times also includes measures of executive MBA programs’ diversity and international reach, as well as of the host business school’s quality (notably, faculty publications and doctoral graduates).

In addition to its new global ranking position, the Broad College’s EMBA has marked considerable milestones in recent years: most recently, taking the program to downtown Detroit.
