ATLANTA – The Executive MBA at Georgia State University’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business is the top public university EMBA program in the state, according to rankings released by Poets & Quants on May 24. The Georgia State EMBA ranks 35th among all U.S. programs and 16th among public university programs.
“We are deeply gratified by the Poets & Quants ranking which we believe reflects the impact of our EMBA alumni in business,” said Brian Jennings, associate dean for graduate programs and executive education at Robinson. “With graduates in C-level positions at The Coca-Cola Company, Cox Communications, Delta Air Lines, The Home Depot, IBM, McKesson and Salesforce, among others, as well as entrepreneurs helming startups, our EMBA program develops leaders and delivers results.”
The 17-month Robinson College EMBA creates executive leaders who can respond to the complex issues facing businesses, develop the critical thinking and problem-solving skills to recognize and pursue business opportunities, build effective teams and integrate functions, and cultivate and apply global competencies during an international residency. Students work with a personal leadership coach to identify their current leadership attributes, determine skills needed to reach their goals and develop a plan to realize their potential.
With more than 2 million monthly visitors, Poets & Quants is a leading resource for information on MBA programs. The online publication calculated its ranking of U.S. EMBA programs by indexing executive MBA rankings published by “The Economist,” the “Financial Times” and “U.S. News & World Report.”
