Athens, Ga. - The Executive MBA Program at the University of Georgia Terry College of Business was ranked No. 14 worldwide by The Economist in its latest assessment.

The new ranking is a step up for Terry's EMBA program, which was No. 22 worldwide in the previous scoring by The Economist.

"I am certainly proud that the excellence of this degree is being recognized in Georgia and around the world," said Benjamin C. Ayers, dean of the Terry College. "This ranking is a reflection of the investment and quality that our faculty put into our EMBA program, and a good indication that it truly enhances the careers of our students."

The Economist's rankings reflect each EMBA program's performance in two broad categories: personal development/education experience and career development, with each category weighted equally. Terry's EMBA program received the highest ranking among schools in Georgia and was eighth among programs based solely in the U.S.

"We are honored to once again be recognized as one of the very best Executive MBA programs in the world," said Rich Daniels, director of Executive and Professional MBA Programs at the Terry College. "Our focus on leadership development, international experience and harnessing the Terry College network has proven to be particularly effective in ensuring that our graduates are successful."

The Terry College's Executive MBA degree is an 18-month program geared toward mid- to senior-level managers. The format combines weekend class sessions with asynchronous interaction using distance learning technologies. The program also offers individual leadership coaching, valuable opportunities to network and an international residency.
