Part-Time MBA Program Places #14 and Executive MBA Program Places #21
CLEVELAND – BusinessWeek recently announced its 2009 rankings for the “Best Part-time MBA Programs” and “Best Executive MBA Programs.”
Weatherhead’s Part-time MBA program placed at #14 in the nation. The Executive MBA Program was placed at #21 among all the executive programs worldwide. Among schools in the United States, the Executive MBA program would be listed at #16.
Weatherhead received excellent ratings across the board in the areas of teaching, the caliber of classmates, the curriculum and support, with students noting the faculty’s outstanding ability to leverage their business experience to advance discussion.
“This is a wonderful, and much deserved honor for the Weatherhead School.” said Dean Mohan Reddy. “In our desire to offer students the best possible experience, we will be launching new program designs later this year for both our Part-time MBA program as well as our EMBA program. It is exciting to see the media and business world take note of the innovations happening here at Weatherhead.”
BusinessWeek ranks Part-Time MBA and EMBA programs every two years. Final standings are based on the responses to surveys completed by current part-time MBA students, EMBA alumni from the classes of 2009, 2007, and 2005, and university program directors. In addition to surveys, academic quality and post MBA outcomes also factor into the rankings.
