ATLANTA – The Executive MBA (EMBA) offered by Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business is No. 26 worldwide and No. 13 among U.S.-based programs, according to 2019 rankings from CEO Magazine.
The U.K.-based publication determines its EMBA rankings by fact-based criteria, with greatest emphasis on quality of faculty. Other attributes evaluated include international diversity, class size, accreditation, faculty-to-student ratio, cost, international exposure, work experience, professional development, gender parity and delivery methods.
“Metric by metric, our EMBA program stacks up against the very best,” said Robinson College Dean Richard D. Phillips. “It’s gratifying to see that reflected in the CEO Magazine rankings.”
Robinson’s EMBA prepares leaders for what’s next in their careers. The 17-month program, taught at Georgia State’s Buckhead Center, broadens mid- to senior-level managers’ understanding of global business and strengthens their professional networks. The program format (every-other weekend plus one Friday a month) allows participants to maintain their careers while pursuing their degrees. It culminates in an international business residency, most recently South Africa, where students meet with business leaders from around the world.
