The Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business Executive MBA program was named among the top 100 executive MBA programs in the world, according to this year’s ranking by The Financial Times. Just 13 U.S. public institutions were included on the publication’s list of top international programs. The ranking also reports a 41 percent increase in the salaries of Scheller Executive MBA students three years after graduation.
“We’re honored to see the Executive MBA program recognized as one of the best in the world,” said Trent Thurman, associate dean of Executive MBA and Executive Education. “We are in the business of providing world-class learning, personalized career services, and an inclusive and close-knit community that allows our students to thrive and achieve their goals in a tech-driven world. The success of our graduates has always been our top priority."
Located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta’s Tech Square, Scheller Executive MBA students learn and network in a dynamic environment boasting the highest density of startups, corporate innovators, and academic researchers in the entire southeastern U.S. The program meets on select Friday evenings and Saturdays over the course of 17 months. The curriculum is geared toward mid-to senior-level professionals and offers two specialized tracks – Global Business and Management of Technology. Both specializations offer experiential learning opportunities at the intersection of innovation, entrepreneurship, and technology.
"I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to pursue an Executive MBA at Georgia Tech. I was able to expand my professional horizons by building capabilities, knowledge, and hands-on experience at the intersection of business and technology. Given that that is becoming more of a mainstream requirement in today's ever-changing age, I can better serve my clients as a management consultant in one of the top four consulting firms,” said Mohamed Arafa, Executive MBA ‘18 and senior manager of transformation design & execution at Ernst & Young. “It has been a fantastic journey, and I would welcome the opportunity to do it all over again.”
