The 2010 Wall Street Journal ranking of Executive MBA programs was compiled by surveying thousands of students and hundreds of companies about the quality of EMBA programs and how well they deliver on improving management and leadership skills.

” The ‘real world’ experience of the professors was evident. Their advice and guidance is consistent with the current business world.”

The Wall Street Journal’s Executive MBA rankings are based on three components: a survey of recent EMBA graduates (BU placed 14th), a survey of companies familiar with EMBA programs (BU placed 27th), and surveys of recent graduates and companies to determine how well schools impart crucial management and leadership skills (BU placed 18th).  The BU EMBA program placed in the top third of reported survey elements, including Program Quality, Faculty Quality, Classmate Quality, and Immediately Applicable Coursework.  The BU EMBA program also had the sixth lowest total program cost overall and the lowest tuition of all U.S. private universities listed.

“We are proud to offer a very high quality, economical Executive MBA Program for our students, and heartened by the satisfaction of our EMBA alumni,” said Kenneth W. Freeman, Allen Questrom Professor and Dean of Boston University School of Management.

“Students are able to provide immediate value to their organizations by being exposed to a rich management curriculum specifically designed for executives, while gaining perspective from classmates in diverse industries,” said Janice Dolnick, Director of BU’s Executive MBA Program.
