The Executive MBA program at The Mason School of Business at The College of William and Mary has been named one of the best 100 programs in the world by the Financial Times' in its global ranking of the world’s best Executive MBA (EMBA) programs, published on October 27.
 
It is ranked 41st among U.S. schools, placing it in the top 50 of all U.S. schools. Internationally it is 94th.
 
The Financial Times surveys alumni who have been out for three years and measures career progression in terms of salary increase and career progress. Career progress is defined as the degree to which the alumni have moved up the career ladder since graduation. Progress is measured through changes in level of seniority and the size of company in which they are employed.
 
On average, W&M EMBAs received nearly a 35% increase in salary after receiving their degrees.
 
“The Financial Times ranking is significant because it measures our graduates’ actual career progress and compares that with other schools.  We are pleased to be one of the best in the world,” said Dean Lawrence B. Pulley.

The Executive MBA  at the College of William and Mary School of Business is a world-class, highly respected MBA program brimming with real-world experiences from both classes taught by one of the best faculty in the country and the professional network of the cohort of classmates. It is the MBA for hard driving, hard-working mid-career professionals who have already achieved a level of career success, but are not quite at the top of their game. For these individuals the W&M EMBA will lead them down the path to greater success or into a career-changing opportunity. EMBAs want change and they want it fast. And at the end of 20 months they will get it.
