College of Business named Tier 1 in Global Ranking for both MBA and EMBA programs by CEO Magazine

September 14, 2016 – CEO Magazine has been showcasing top business schools from around the globe since it first launched in 2008. This is the first year The University of Texas at Arlington College of Business appeared in the ranking. The CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings are designed with applicants in mind, and examine the nuts and bolts of an MBA: the learning environment, class sizes, tuition fees, faculty, delivery methods, international diversity, gender make-up and more. The objective is to identify schools which marry exceptional quality with great ROI.

"The jobs of tomorrow need managers with great business and leadership skills. The faculty at the College of Business arm our students, in both MBA and EMBA programs, with those skills and more so they can achieve success in their careers," says Dr. Chandra Subramaniam, Interim Dean of the College of Business.

When asked why rankings are important, Julie Ngo, Director of Academic Brand Management, responded by saying that, "rankings play a role in shaping the opinions of current and potential students, parents, employers, and the government about the quality of education institutions and their program offerings. We can then promote and enhance our reputation and use that as a way to increase enrollment and retention. This will often help raise our reputation and rankings in other areas."

The complete CEO Magazine Global MBA Rankings 2016 can be viewed in the latest edition on page 12 of the CEO Magazine.
