BOCA RATON, Fla. (January 3, 2014) – Florida Atlantic University’s College of Business has announced that its AACSB-accredited executive M.B.A. program has been recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek’s “Best Business Schools of 2013” report. This report is unique in that it reflects student opinion and was based on a survey of more than 10,000 recent graduates at 138 business schools.
This is the first year that FAU has been recognized, and is one of three Florida universities listed in the second tier, alongside Rice, Texas A&M and Michigan State universities. Bloomberg Businessweekhas been ranking the world’s top business programs since 1991.
“We are excited to be recognized by Bloomberg Businessweek. I believe the most important thing is to deliver high-quality programs. To be one of three executive M.B.A. programs recognized in the state of Florida speaks to the outstanding faculty and staff who teach and manage the program,” said Dan Gropper, Ph.D. dean of FAU’s College of Business. “We strive to exceed the expectations of our students and it is a tremendous honor to receive their recognition of the first in-class programs we offer at Florida Atlantic University.”
FAU’s executive M.B.A. program offers the third lowest tuition rate compared to the eleven other executive M.B.A. programs in Florida. The program is designed for working professionals, meets once every three weeks on Saturday and Sunday, and allows participants to continue their professional responsibilities while earning a nationally accredited Master of Business Administration degree with an International Business or alternative specialization. The program starts in January and August of each year with the next program beginning Jan. 11, 2014.
