CLEVELAND—Weatherhead’s Executive MBA (EMBA) curriculum was rated the best in Ohio and 34th internationally in The Economist’s first world ranking of EMBA programs.

Our EMBA program, geared toward professionals with at least 10 years of experience, allows students to interact with faculty from Weatherhead’s Organizational Behavior Department, considered among the best in the world.

“We are delighted to be included in the Economist’s very first ranking of EMBA programs,” said Robert E. Widing II, PhD, dean of the school and Albert J. Weatherhead III Professor of Management. “As a school, we promote good global citizenship and value an international perspective. That our EMBA is ranked No. 34 among impressive institutions around the world is further recognition of the global relevance of what we teach and practice at Weatherhead.”

Rankings by the U.K.-based publication were based on information about curriculum and faculty and feedback from current EMBA students and alumni from the last three graduating classes.

The Economist rates full-time MBA programs annually in its “Which MBA?” ranking. Weatherhead’s full-time MBA most recently ranked #100 worldwide.
