Only Executive Education Program in Georgia to be included in Global Rankings

May 18, 2015 — The Financial Times released its annual rankings of executive education programs today. In this ranking, Goizueta Business School’s Emory Executive Education was the only program in Georgia among the global rankings. The program rated #9 among U.S. Business Schools, and was only one of two business schools in the Southeastern United States included in the global rankings.

The rankings, based upon client feedback, consider a range of factors, all of which impact the quality of an executive education program and its ability to impact executives. Emory, specifically, was highly rated among U.S. Business Schools in the following categories:

  • #7 for the quality of teaching and the extent to which teaching staff worked together to present a coherent program
  • #8 for the level of interaction between client and school, the extent to which clients’ ideas were integrated into the program, and the effectiveness of the school in integrating its latest research
  • #8 for the relevance of skills gained to the workplace, the ease with which they were implemented, and the extent to which the course encouraged new ways of thinking
  • #9 for program design
  • #9 for Follow-up
  • #10 for the extent to which academic and business expectations were met

“We are pleased to receive recognition for the quality of our work at Emory Executive Education,” said Lisa Kaminski, Associate Dean for Executive Education at the Goizueta Business School. “These rankings demonstrate the importance of working in partnership with our clients, listening to their needs and ensuring alignment between their priorities and the learning journey.”

Emory Executive Education remains as one of five programs at Goizueta Business School to maintain a consistent ranking among the world’s best. Several of Emory’s custom programs for corporate partners have garnered recognition from key business publications as well as talent and development organizations over the last decade.
