Emory University’s Goizueta Business School continues to be recognized for its premier Executive MBA (EMBA) program. The annual Poets & Quants rankings released yesterday show Goizueta ranking 8th in the nation, the same position it held in last year’s rankings. The program also continues to hold the #1 spot in Georgia, according to the Poets & Quants rankings as well as the U.S. News & World Report rankings earlier this year. 

With a focus on building principled leaders who can immediately add organizational value during and after the program, Goizueta EMBA graduates realize return on their investment quickly. In fact, EMBA students experience an average 43% growth in salary post-graduation. 

At Goizueta, the Executive MBA program provides the breadth of business acumen and depth of expertise that a seasoned professional or current executive needs to drive organizational value. It offers a personal, deeply immersive, and hands-on experience that expands an individual’s leadership capacity.

Goizueta’s EMBA program builds business fluency, diversifies perspectives, and expands leadership capabilities. Students work alongside peers from diverse backgrounds and industries, gain frameworks to become more strategic problem solvers, and refine their executive presence and leadership style through one-on-one coaching.

In addition to its on-campus and hybrid EMBA formats, Goizueta launched a new, fully online format of its Executive MBA program this year–the highest-ranked EMBA program nationwide to offer an online option.

“Goizueta is poised to take digital learning to the next level by providing business professionals with a truly immersive, dynamic experience from anywhere in the world,” says Conner.

In order to determine annual rankings, the new Poets & Quants report takes into account the three major Executive MBA rankings from U.S. News & World Reportthe Financial Timesand The Economist.
