The Executive MBA Program at the University of Georgia Terry College of Business is among the nation’s best public programs in a global survey published by the Financial Times.

The program is No. 8 among U.S. public business Schools, No. 21 among U.S.-based EMBA programs, and is the top-ranked public program in Georgia. The Financial Times survey also ranked Terry’s EMBA No. 8 among U.S. public business programs for full-time faculty research, indicative of the prominence and impact of the research conducted by Terry College faculty.

“The Terry EMBA program provides experienced professionals the strategic knowledge, leadership skills, and invaluable network required to excel in today’s competitive business landscape,” said Terry College Dean Ben Ayers. “The strong ranking demonstrates our dedication to our students and commitment to help them achieve their full potential.”

Terry’s Executive MBA is an 18-month degree program geared toward mid- to senior-level professionals, with weekend classes taught at the college’s Executive Education Center in Atlanta.

“We empower experienced professionals with the knowledge, network, and innovation needed to thrive,” said Susan Brown, director of Executive, Professional, and Online MBA programs at Terry College. “The ranking reflects our unwavering dedication to fostering transformative leadership.”

The Financial Times rankings are based on surveys of Class of 2020 graduates and employ more than 15 weighted measures. A survey completed by leading business schools worldwide gathered data on faculty quality, program diversity, research ranking, and carbon footprint rank. The average salary reported by Terry College graduates represented a 50 percent increase from their pre-EMBA compensation.
