Just after receiving plaudits from the Financial Times, the Graduate School of Business Administration was honored by Bloomberg/Businessweek magazine, which ranked the school’s Executive MBA (EMBA) program 39th globally.
The ranking puts the program in the company of those at the Naveen Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas and the Paul Merage School of Business at the University of California.
It also marks Fordham’s first appearance in the numerical portion of Bloomberg/Businessweek’s list. In 2009, the last year
the survey was conducted, the magazine ranked the top 25 programs in the world, and Fordham was listed in the second, unranked tier.
This year’s numerical list was expanded to the top 40. Fordham was lauded in the categories of international business, marketing and the school’s sustainability practices.
Francis Petit, Ed.D., associate dean for Executive MBA programs at Fordham, said the news adds to the continued momentum of the Executive MBA program.
“Our goal has always been to not only recruit dynamic and professionally diverse students who can all individually add value, but to also create a distinctive and collaborative EMBA community within the Jesuit tradition,” he said.
“Special recognition should be given to our colleague Mary Kate Donato, the GBA program associate and an EMBA alumna, who champions our EMBA rankings strategy.”
