CLEVELAND—Case Western Reserve University’s organizational behavior (OB) program continues to excel as a leading program at the Weatherhead School of Management as it ranked second in the world, according to the Financial Times, which released its global MBA rankings this week. Weatherhead also placed in the top 100 schools in the world, the top 50 in the United States and as the top school in Ohio.

“We are pleased that the school has ranked top in the world for OB over the past five years,” said Mohan Reddy, dean of the Weatherhead School of Management. “These rankings confirm the school’s commitment to this management area, and this level of excellence resonates throughout other management areas at Weatherhead as well.”

The organizational behavior program at Case has been a pioneering leader in the field of organizational analysis and development. In 1964, it was the first school to create a doctoral program in the field and continually attracts students from around the world.

Under the leadership of David Cooperrider, Case professor and chair of the organizational behavior department, the school has spearheaded efforts to advance socially responsible businesses through initiatives from the Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit (BAWB). In October 2006, BAWB hosted an international conference that connected 1,000 business leaders and students through on-campus events and Internet connections. More recently, Fairmount Minerals Ltd. donated $2.4 million to establish a chair in social entrepreneurship and a seed fund to support programs in the areas of social responsibility and sustainable business.

In addition to the organizational behavior program, the Case management school is on the move with a new dean, who is setting course for the school’s future. The school offers its students flexibility in educational options to meet individual educational needs through full-, part-time and Saturday programs, as well as the Executive Master of Business Administration program. Also offered are many interdisciplinary programs that link business practices to other fields, such as science. An example is the Master of Science in Management in Finance, the newest master’s degree -– a specialized program focused on the principles of finance and their applications within the corporation, capital markets, investments and risk management, with an immersion of their application to meet today’s business needs.
The Financial Times Global MBA Rankings are compiled from responses from business schools and alumni who graduated between three to five years ago.
