Business Week has just published its highly influential rankings of executive MBA and Executive Education programs, and I’m pleased and proud to note that Columbia has not only done well, but improved its position considerably in both.
In his first year as Associate Dean of our executive education offerings, Troy Eggers has led a strong upswing in our position. For non-degree executive education offerings, Columbia ranked #5 for Open Enrollment (programs that people from any company can take) and #7 for custom programs (designed specifically to meet the needs of individual clients). We were ranked #7 and #20 respectively in the survey done two years ago. Of particular note is that our strategy and leadership offerings were both rated with an A+.
Our Executive MBA program, under the leadership of Associate Dean Ethan Hanabury, has captured the #6 spot on the ratings. That’s huge, because two years ago flaws in the program had led to its not even making the top 20 (which was a major psychological blow).

Rankings of course do not capture the heart and soul of a program, but it’s still nice to have the external validation.
