Fuqua's Executive MBA Programs Ranked No.9 and No. 11 by BusinessWeek

October 13, 2005

The Duke MBA Global Executive and The Duke MBA Weekend Executive programs at Duke University 's Fuqua School of Business have been highly ranked by BusinessWeek 's 2005 world-wide rankings report. The Global Executive program remains at the No. 9 spot and the Weekend Executive program ranked No. 11.

BusinessWeek based the Top 25 executive MBA program rankings on two opinion polls in which they surveyed 3,400 executive MBA graduates from the class of 2005 and 61 executive MBA program directors. The graduates were questioned about the students' experience at their schools, the quality of teaching, the curriculum and the level of support services from staff. The directors were asked to rank ten schools that offered the highest-quality programs and were not allowed to include their own school. The magazine commented that Duke's "global focus" and "quality teaching" were cited by our recent graduates and other EMBA directors around the world.
