The Executive MBA program at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business is ranked one of the best in the world, according to a new survey by the Financial Times. The program ranked No. 22 nationally and No. 83 globally, moving up 8 and 12 spots respectively. The Eccles School’s program also ranked No. 4 in the West.
“The new Financial Times ranking is a testament to our program’s continuing innovative education, student success and outstanding faculty,” said Taylor Randall, dean of the David Eccles School of Business. “An Eccles MBA provides students with an excellent return on their educational investment and a competitive advantage in the workplace.”
Eccles School Executive MBA graduates were successful in increasing their salaries three years after graduation by 41 percent, translating to an average salary of $142,754, according to the survey.
“This ranking is particularly impressive given the increasing competition among Executive MBA programs worldwide,” said Brad Vierig, associate dean of Executive Education at the Eccles School. “Our graduates go on to do amazing things, in part because of their experience here at the Eccles School.”
