Terry MBA among best in the world


In its first rankings of Executive MBA programs, The Economist placed the Terry College of Business No. 22 worldwide. The Economist’s rankings reflect each EMBA program’s performance in two broad categories: personal development/education experience and career development, with each category weighted equally. Terry’s EMBA program received the highest ranking among schools in Georgia, and was ranked No. 10 among programs based solely in the U.S. Rankings data were collected using two Web-based questionnaires. The first surveyed business schools about student quality and diversity, faculty qualifications, number of overseas assignments and alumni statistics. The second survey was given to current students and EMBA alumni from the last three graduating classes. It asked for ratings of classmates, faculty, curriculum and facilities. Alumni were also asked to report their pre-EMBA and current salaries to determine average increases. Terry’s Executive MBA program started in 2001. The program moved to its current location at the Terry Executive Education Center in Buckhead in 2005. Get more at http://mba.terry.uga.edu.
