Boston University’s Executive MBA program has been ranked 1st in New England and 19th nationally for programs based solely in the United States by The Economist. BU placed 36th among all executive MBA programs in the world.

In addition, Boston University placed 10th globally for “Quality of Students” which is determined not only by student metrics, such as incoming work experience, but also includes a student assessment of their classmates. This is The Economist’s first ranking of executive MBA programs and is based on a diverse set of measures of student experience, half of which were influenced by alumni questionnaires of the most recent three classes.

“We appreciate that this ranking reflects the high levels of alumni satisfaction and achievement within their careers, as they are one of our most important stakeholders,” said Janice Dolnick, EMBA program director. “The BU Executive MBA continues to be a leading program in New England, and as our school celebrates our centennial we look forward to continuing to innovate to prepare our students for the critical challenges they face within their organizations and society.”

This ranking continues a trend of external recognition of the School of Management’s momentum as it enters its centennial year. The Executive MBA program at Boston University is built upon an innovative integrated curriculum that is increasingly valued by both students and employers. Residing within a leading research university, the BU EMBA program provides students exposure to leading faculty and pioneering research in areas vital for today’s leaders.
