The 2012 Financial Times ranking of executive MBA programs around the world has placed Boston University School of Management 1st in New England, and 22nd among US-based EMBA programs.

Globally, BU’s Executive MBA program was ranked 66th. In addition, the School placed 6th among US-based programs in the category of alumni career progress.

Data from alumni questionnaires (including areas such as “salary today” and “aims achieved”) account for 55 percent of the ranking’s weight. These criteria include data collated by Financial Times over the past three years, where available. Data supplied by the school accounts for 35 percent, and faculty research published in particular leading journals account for the final ten percent.

“This ranking is reflective of the high levels of student satisfaction with the the quality and career impact expressed by our alumni,” said Janice Dolnick, EMBA program director. “We are continually evolving our curriculum to keep up with changing business environments. This ensures that our students are receiving the most current and effective management training to date.”
