The Broad College’s Executive MBA has been a top-ranked program nationally since 2014, and this year’s ranking from Financial Times maintains this legacy. The 2020 Executive MBA rankings, released today, once again place the Broad EMBA program within the top 10 U.S. public schools, coming in at No. 9.

“It’s great to see our student successes and faculty/staff contributions recognized in this very visible way,” said Cheri DeClercq, assistant dean for MBA programs. “We’re honored to be recognized alongside top business schools around the globe.”

The Broad EMBA program was ranked No. 17 among U.S. schools overall — up from No. 18 last year — and No. 90 globally. These standings reflect improvements made within the program to continually expand the value being offered to Broad Spartans.

“We continue to enhance the program each year to ensure we’re developing the leaders that organizations need to succeed in today’s unpredictable environment,” said Greg Janicki, Broad EMBA graduate and director of the program.

The 2020 rankings also show how the Broad College supports diversity among the faculty. About a third of full-time faculty are women, a proportion that’s held steady for the past eight years, and almost a third of full-time faculty are international, an increase over those same eight years.

“Diversity of people and perspectives is important to the success of organizations and their leaders, and so we are very intentional about this in our program,” DeClercq said.

Financial Times’ Executive MBA rankings report the top 100 EMBA programs each year, and the rankings are based on data provided by schools and alumni. The Broad College has participated in this ranking since 2002.
