The objective is to identify schools which marry exceptional quality with great return-on-investment.

"We are extremely honored to achieve this recognition. We are very proud of our EMBA program and even more so of our outstanding graduates. I would like to thank the great faculty and staff that have helped to make this happen. Developing a successful program, such as ours, is definitely a team effort," said Dave Mack, associate dean of Communications & Executive Education.
