The truly global Executive MBA


I wanted to share with you an interesting article I read on the Poets and Quants website ( titled Most Innovative Global MBA Programs.

In the article, John Byrne - the site’s founder - talks about a number of Executive MBA Programs that he considers to be innovative and truly global. He argues that the programs in his list are global because they provide, “A thoughtful understanding of how the global economy works and how organizations can best organize and operate in it.”

One of the schools included on the list is the Chicago Booth Executive MBA Program. Our program, with its incredibly diverse student population (50 countries are represented in the current class), is designed in a way that 25% of the program is spent studying in International groups made up of students from all three of our campuses - London, Singapore and Chicago. This cultural diversity is matched with a diversity of industry and job function that make for a supercharged learning environment. Classroom interactions with a diverse group of students who are experienced managers, led by some of the best faculty in the world, are really the foundation of our program.

As Byrne also points out, “The most amazing attribute of this experience is that it is the mainstream EMBA program at Chicago.” In fact it is the only Executive MBA Program we offer.
