Financial Times ranks Daniels Executive MBA program No. 90

London-based newspaper The Financial Times ranked DU’s Daniels College of Business Executive MBA (EMBA) Program No. 90 in the world (tied with Brigham Young University).

According to the rankings released Oct. 27, Daniels is the sole Colorado school named to the list, joining Columbia, the London Business School, Wharton, NYU, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Melbourne Business School, Georgetown and UCLA, among others.

The Daniels EMBA program for experienced professionals has a specially designed, 18-month rigorous curriculum to meet students’ needs and schedules.

“Our Executive MBA program has long been a jewel in the Daniels crown,” says Dean Christine Riordan. “Our faculty have always stressed relevance in the classroom on par with scholarly pursuits, and no one appreciates this more than the working professionals in our EMBA program.”

This is the first year that Daniels has been included in the Financial Times EMBA ranking, now in its seventh year. The ranking is compiled using data from two sets of surveys; alumni who graduated from the respective programs in 2005 complete one and the business schools complete the other. The methodology measures salary and career progression, diversity and faculty research.

The Daniels College of Business has also been honored as one of the top business schools in the world byBusinessWeek, U.S. News & World Report and the “Beyond Grey Pinstripes” ranking from the Aspen Institute.
